Cool water: Use cool/luke-warm water first to stop the burning. Leave blisters intact.

This will reduce the pain, limit the spread of the burn, and be of great relief. If you did not do these, or applied oil or butter (useless!), then you will have a painful area to deal with. ...Read more

Can rust/burnt food from baking pans and a griddle give you tetanus? I think a piece of rust/burnt food got in my finger. Got it out with nail clipper.

While the normal core body temperature is 98 degrees fahrenheit, the hands typically are 20 degrees colder. This is why patients with raynaud's disease tend to have cold fingers-they are furthest from the heart. Exercise can help. Wear gloves. ...Read more
