What is the best way to treat a 2nd degree burn at home?
I have a pretty painful 2nd degree burn on the side of my arm.

I'll go to the doctor if I have to, but I'd prefer to try and treat it at home.

What's the best way to help it heal?

no idea :P

I heard salt helps..

butter on the burn. it helped me with a large 2nd degree and a small 3rd (try not to catch the motor cycle your working on on fire)

Like how did you get the burn
1. Hot metal, hot water, stove try to keep it cool put an ice cube on it
3. If you have bubbles on your hand Go to the Doctors

ice and neosporin

apply Essential oil of Lavender undiluted to the distressed skin.


first off you have to get the heat out of it before it will begin to heal. use ice. The ice will make you feel like screaming at first. do not put any kind of ointment on it until you get the heat out of it first. If it is still painful that means it is still burning. Ice, ice and more ice. You can also soak in a bath tub filled with cold water. Is it blistering. If it is; be very careful not to pop these blisters. it is best if they dry up on there own. If they pop it just means it will take longer to heal. Keep it clean. You can start applying burn medication after the fire pain is out of it. i had a second and third degree burn and went to the emergency room and these are the steps they followed with me.

You can treat burns at home, but it's better to just go to a doctor. That way, you'll be sure that nothing will go wrong. There are some things you shouldn't do, though.

Don't put butter on it.

Don't put ice on it.

Don't leave it uncovered.

Just put the burn in water and go to the doctor. Yes, you fill a bucket with water and keep the burn in it. Have someone you know drive you to the doctor. You can try home remedies, but it's better to get medical help instead.

dont touch it. just leave it. burns are best off healing on their own. dont apply ointment or anything , just leave it.

DO NOT PUT ICE ON THE BURN. It may cause further damage via frost bite because your skin is weak.

Wash it with cool water for 5 minutes and antibacterial soap.
Afterward wrap it in a sterile gauze bandage.
If the pain is bad take pain relievers.

I heard toothpaste can help too =S. If the burn is small.
I also heard that raw potatoes help as well.

You definitely need to go see a doctor. No home way to treat that.

Well here are some things NOT to do:

Don't apply ice directly to the burn, or you may damage the skin and just make it worse.

Don't apply ointments of any sort to the burn. Ointments block the infected area, and won't let it heal naturally.

Don't break blisters, or you may get an infection.

The best way to heal the burn is by applying a cold compress to it, or run it under cold water for a good 5 minutes or so. Apply gauze around it (not cotton) loosely around the burn. This will protect the burn from any more damage and keep air out. If the burn really hurts, take an OTC medication, like Aleve or Advil to get rid of the pain. If it gets worse, you should not hesitate to see a doctor.Other than that, your burn should heal naturally with time. :)

Depends how big it is. If its major, go to the doctor.
If not, wrap it lightly with gauze so it doesnt get infected.

Get a cloth with water, try room temperature or cold, and put it on your arm. That should take the pain away. Then try putting some ice on it. If you do this every week, it should heal fast. Thanks for reading!

Drug stores have burn cream that will help with the pain. Also things like neosporin will help but be sure that you wash it thoroughly with soap and water. Don't use any kind of hydrogen peroxide, this will just make you scar and not heal properly. It is a misconception that it is good to kill bacteria, and it does effectively kill it, however, it also warps and kills healthy skin cells.

Use ice sparingly, also not directly to the skin.
Invest in some burn cream
Make sure you do not irritate the skin or go out in direct sunlight.
Make sure to drink plenty of fluids during this time, your body needs it, and will actually lose fluid through the skin.
your priorities right now are:
a) prevent infection
b) avoid pain
c) help renew damaged area-use

The best way to heal a 2nd degree would be to use Silvadene and the only place you get that is from the doctor, but if yo don't want to go the doctor keep it covered for the first couple days, if it boiled up, then don't pop and let it drain on its own, once it has drained then put Triple Antibiotic Ointment on it and put a piece of gauze and wrapped it up. Let it air out for a couple of hours a day.
If it becomes red and painfully hurts you or if there is white puss come out then get to the doctor as soon as possible.

put frozen peas on it......it will help it alot

put cold towels n make sure ur arm is in cool temp. cuz if its in hot then it will hurt rlly bad.

keep an antibiotic salve on it and keep it clean if it starts looking worse go to the doctor don't fool around with getting infection in your arm

There are some good burn treatments that have a lidocaine base (which is a strong pain reliever) that are over the counter at Wal-mart. The one that I know that works well is Burn Jel Plus, and it cost about $5. It is in the pharmacy section where the pain sprays are located. It will help, it is used by restaurants and such for cooks that get bad burns. My daughter is a kitchen manager for Carrabba's and she swears by it.

Go to your pharmacy and look for silver sulfide cream. Keep the wound covered. Burns get infected easily.

I burnt my hand badly about a week ago and it has healed nicely-- keep it under cold water for a while, and then put some burn cream or some neosporin (or something like it) on it, like gob it on there for a few days- try to keep it covered as much as possible- after about a day or two you can probably uncover it but keep putting the ointment on.

Rinse with Cold Water apply a burn ointment and wrap it losely and get your butt to a hospital ER on the double! 2nd degree is serious business and needs to be professionally treated in hurry. I understand the fact you don't or may not like going to a Dr /Hospital because of the expense etc. But its' worth it because too many nasty things can happen with a burn like that. if it isn't treated properly. So get your butt to a doc and quick.
God Bless and be safe.

If the burn is bigger than a 50 pence piece (about inch in diameter) then you should go to hospital and get it treated because they can give you anti-biotics which will reduce the risk of infection. Though you might not want to see a doctor, if you get blood poisoning (septicemia) then it can be quite unpleasant.

Also, if you go to a doctor, they can make sure that you're not going to walk away with any complications.

In the meantime, keep it clean and cool. Cover it with something that is not going to stick to the wound and put antiseptic on it - it will sting but it will help.

Personally wouldn't risk it and just get the doctor to sort it out.

Treat burns in the following ways:

Cool the burned area with moist, clean, cool cloths.
Rinse with tap water, and clean with soap and water.
Apply a layer of Silvadene cream ( silver sulfadiazine) morning and evening. (Do not use Silvadene near the eyes.) Cover with gauze dressings. Clean off all Silvadene cream with soap and water with each dressing change.
Blisters may rupture. Remove the dead skin with sterile scissors and tweezers.
Flush chemical burns with water until all burning pain has stopped. Remove all contaminated clothes.
Oral antibiotics are usually recommended to prevent infection. If infection develops, continue antibiotics for at least 5 days after all signs of infection have gone away. Let the doctor know about any drug allergies so the right antibiotic can be prescribed. Some oral antibiotics can cause sensitivity to the sun , so use a sunscreen (at least SPF 15).
Pain may be relieved with 1-2 acetaminophen (Tylenol) every 4 hours or 1-2 ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin) every 6-8 hours.
