What is the best treatment for burns from melted and pretty much boiling hot butter being dumped on your wrist should I go to the dr.?

What is the best treatment for burns from melted and pretty much boiling hot butter being dumped on your wrist should I go to the dr.?

Maybe: Butter can get much hotter than boiling water and can cause a deep burn. If the area is larger than a quarter, it is probably a good idea to have it looked at. Silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) cream and a dressing changed each day until healed, watching for signs of infection, and scar management (deep burn) are all good things to be gained by a visit to a doctor with some burn experience. Good luck! ...Read more

I used cocoa butter lotion on my face and body but I am constantly in the sun, does that make me burn easier? Also should I used aloe lotions instead?

I used cocoa butter lotion on my face and body but I am constantly in the sun, does that make me burn easier? Also should I used aloe lotions instead?

USE SUNSCREEN: Any kind of oil like cocoa butter will magnify the sun's rays and make you more likely to burn. You should use a labeled sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 and reapply every 2-3 hours, more often if swimming or sweating. Aloe will help AFTER you burn, but does little to prevent and it is far better never to burn. ...Read more

Showered 1 day & my chest started burning, it left scabs that fell off, now I have dark marks on chest. Using aloe Vera & cocoa butter. Will it work?

Showered 1 day & my chest started burning, it left scabs that fell off, now I have dark marks on chest. Using aloe Vera & cocoa butter. Will it work?

NO: What is on your chest? Acne? There are effective treatments for acne. You are using benzoyl peroxide and doxycycline. I doubt that you have rosacea. Aloe and butter will not help you. If your present treatment is not effective you can change. Spironolactone will probably work well. If not you can rescue from acne with isotretinoin. See a dermatologist. ...Read more

After eating peanut butter, I have burning eyes, throat/eye swelling, low blood pressure, blurred vision. I have eaten it since a child so no allergy

Anaphylaxis?: It appeared that you had suffered shock from the peanut butter. Although most food allergies developed in childhood, they can also occur in adults. Before you touch peanuts again, be sure to get tested by an allergist. In the meanwhile, you need to carry an epineprhine autoinjector (preferably 2) with you until this issue has been clarified. ...Read more
