Try to leave open to air, but keep clean. Use dry, non-adhesive, non-fluffy sterile dressing if blister bursts. Use OTC pain killers. Any signs of infection--increasing redness, pus, more swelling--see doctor for infection eval. Need tetanus shot ...Read more

The skin under my nose peeling and burning, what is the best way to treat this?

Moisturizing lotions: I like water-based moisturizing lotions. My favorites are dml lotion and dml forte cream. These are water based, and don't have any fragrances or colorings that could cause skin irritations.

Is it normal for the exposed layer of skin to peel or slough in a second degree burn?

Is it normal for the exposed layer of skin to peel or slough in a second degree burn?

Yes: A second degree burn involves a partial thickness injury to the skin. The epidermis usually separates from the dermis and often forms fluid filled blisters. Usually the damaged superficial layer of skin peels or sloughs off as the skin underneath heals. This peeling can also happen in some 1st degree burns (e.G sunburn). ...Read more

What to do about peeling skin from burn?

What to do about peeling skin from burn?

Let it peel: On its own time. Do not try to peel it off too soon. Peeling often happens as a result of a 1st degree burn, like a sunburn. If during burn recovery, damaged skin is peeled too soon, the dermal layer below may be damaged as well. Generally speaking, the skin should peel on its own under nothing more than the pressure of a normal shower. Gentle soap and water applicaiton works best. ...Read more

Got a sunburn on vaca. There is a dark burn like mark on my shoulder now. Peeling and discolored skin underneath. Not sure how to treat.?

Sunburn: Do you like your skin nice and crispy, or the type that just melts in your mouth? You charred your shoulder recently and while we think that might be just be just fine for a steer that we intend to consume we do not think it's fine for humans. I assume you don't engage in cannabalism. Use plenty of hi SPF sunscreen oil-base. For the burn, sulfadiazine. ...Read more

See Your Doctor: It could be several things, from infections to various skin conditions. Most can easily be treated. As long as you have a rash and peeling skin, it disrupts the protective barrier the skin provides from other infections and leaves you more susceptible to picking up infections (like stds and hiv). ...Read more

Does a glycolic acid peel hurt? Is a glycolic acid peel one of those treatments that burn the skin and cause a lot of pain? .

Chemical: Chemical peels involve the use of chemicals to remove the outer layers of the skin. There are several different chemicals used based on the depth of skin removal desired. Discomfort is directly related to the depth of peel. Light peels will have a mild discomfort while deeper peels have a greater degree of intraoperative and postoperative discomfort. Some deep peels are done under sedation for that reason. Talk to the physician who is doing the procedure about your concerns. ...Read more
