Thermal burn treat: First treatment of thermal burns is to cool it down- remove from source of heat, splash it with clean cold water, etc, Then have to determine the degree of burn. With only redness just first degree; with slight blistering probably second degree. Next maxim is keep it clean! Get a large gauze bandage.

Rash bumps that itch a lot may be allergic reactions and/or skin infections. Chicken pox cause little water-filled bumps. A primary care doctor can evaluate to decide on a diagnosis and talk about treatment options. ...Read more

I have a black spot on my hand but I am not sure if it is a blood blister or a mole it has been there for about one and a half weeks?

I have a black spot on my hand but I am not sure if it is a blood blister or a mole it has been there for about one and a half weeks?

Unclear: Blood blisters are usually painful, and related to pressure or trauma though not infrequently there may be no recollection of a specific event. They can take several weeks to resolve as the blood gets reabsorbed by the body. A mole typically is not painful, and would not change much over a month. So time would likely help answer this question for you. If worse, please have it examined. ...Read more
