I burned my pointer finger and thumb on a Christmas candle, and my thumb got a blister. I couldn't keep it off ice for long without the burning coming back. I grabbed my earlobe between the two fingers, and that allowed me enough time to run to the freezer from the computer room. I tried vanilla, and that kept it away for about two minutes. Also tried several home remedies. Ice is the only thing that will help, so it looks like I'm gonna be good friends with my ice pack for a while...

I have been looking at all the sites about common burns and I am quite shocked that the only treatment that works is not there. You must cut off the air to the wound and a piece of tape on the burn will cure it in 180 seconds. Try it you will like it. New skin works also just make sure no air is able to reach the burn.


Don't use ice!!!
Putting ice directly on a burn can cause a person's body to become too cold and cause further damage to the wound.
Don't apply egg whites, butter or ointments to the burn. This could cause infection.
Don't break blisters. Broken blisters are more vulnerable to infection
