SImple basic care: Burns are response of the tissues to injury from heat. It is simply inflammation which means increase blood flow to promote healing. Depth determines care. Use of ice worsens already injured skin. Cool water soaks help as can taking anti-inflammation medicines like Motrin or advil (ibuprofen). Avoid any further damage as this can cause scarring. Good skin cream applied daily/gently helps, keep it covered. ...Read more
