Today at work I was pouring soup into a cup when it spilt onto my thumb and just above. I out it under cool water straight away but it was still burni?

Yes?: Given the scenario you described, a burn is possible. If the skin is red and tender to touch, but the top layer of the skin is preserved, it is likely a simple first-degree burn that will heal within the next few days. If the skin is broken or there are underlying tissue exposed, I would get it seen by your doctor. Otherwise, cold water will soothe it, and some simple burn ointment will help. ...Read more

I can't stop drinking water as I still feel dehydrated straight after, please help? What could be wrong?

See your physician.: I assume the feeling of dehydration is coming from a dry mouth. If so, it can be a sign of diabetes or a side effect of any medication you may be taking (over 400 medications are known to do this). See your physician and let him evaluate possible causes. If it is a medication you take, maybe he can switch to a different drug that won't dry you out. ...Read more
