About 28 hours ago I accidentally myself on my right 'love

Customer Question

Hello. About 28 hours ago I accidentally burnt myself on my right 'love handle' from steam from a kettle. The burn is only a total of about a square inch and a half. It has unbroken blisters and looks red. I put some bactroban on it during the day and covered it with a dressing. This evening I sprayed aloe Vera mist on it.
My question is that I am supposed to play several games of European Handball tomorrow night and was wondering if it was safe to do this.
About 3 weeks ago I had a minor staph infection on my leg but it is fully healed now.

Hi there ...

As blisters , and redness indicates that you have superficial burn , you should break blister , remove fluid and skin overlying it and apply Quench cream over it , you will recover soon .

And you can carry out games .

Regards ***** ***** luck .

Please leave positive feedback for me .

Thanks for your reply. I thought blistering indicates 2nd degree burns and breaking the blisters can lead to infection. Is this not the case?

No , it will ease you , this indicates superficial burn .

It will not cause infection , after puncture of blister apply Quench cream .

Good luck .

Positive feedback will be appreciated .

Thanks .
