I can't really get the bumps to show up well in the picture, but you can see a little bit around the right/bottom edges of the burn.
It won't let me attach a photo. It keeps saying that I don't have permission to view the page through this server, yet I can send text replies...
Ugh, I'm having all kinds of technological difficulties tonight. I guess I'll try using my work computer to do this in the morning. Sorry.
As far as I can tell, they are not any type of blister-type bumps. They look more like goosebumps, except red and itchy.I was thinking that it might be a heat rash from keeping my arm bandaged but the nurse at my school said it didn't look like that to her. Could it maybe be an allergic reaction to the silver cream? (I developed a nickel allergy shortly after the first time I took Bactrim in high school, but not a sulpha allergy.)
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
Thank you. Would it be a bad idea to try putting hydrocortisone cream on it? The burn seems to be covered over with new skin now, just a lot of itchy bumps. Should I go back to see my doctor next week (he's out of town this week) or just wait and see how it heals?
