Burns

Burns occur when the skin is exposed to high heat, certain chemicals, or intense electric currents. Burns range from first degree (the least severe) to third degree (the most severe). A mild burn of first degree will only cause red skin and a mild pain. It takes about three to six days to heal. Second-degree burns may cause blister and are usually swollen and painful. Third-degree burns are severe burns which damage deeper layers of skin and sometimes the fat and nerves underneath, may look gray and charred. There may be little or no pain. They cause fluid loss and may lead to shock. Minor burns respond well to home treatment; however, severe burns require immediate medical care.

Home Remedies
  • Cool the burn: The very first thing you should do is to take immediate step to cool the burn. Hold the burned area under cold running water for at least 10 minutes. Once the burn has cooled, gently remove anything that constrict the area if it starts to swell, such as cloth, or watches. Don’t try to remove clothing or material that is stuck to burned skin.
  • Aloe vera: Apply the gel from inside the leaf of aloe vera plant or use aloe vera cream on burn.
  • Aloe vera, sandalwood and turmeric: Mix 1 tablespoon aloe vera with 1/4 teaspoon each of sandalwood and turmeric and apply the paste topically.
  • Cliantro: Take fresh juice of cilantro by placing a handful of cilantro in the blender with about 1/3 cup of water. Strain it and take 2 teaspoons three times a day.
  • Vitamin E: Once the wound starts healing, break a capsule of vitamin E and pour the liquid on it. This will reduce the chance of scarring.
Do's
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Increase your vitamin C intake.
  • Consume a high protein and calorie diet to speed up the recovery.
Don’ts
  • Do not apply any type of butter on a burn.
  • Do not break blisters.
