What is the best ointment to use when you burn your hand with a frying pan?

Cool water: Use cool/luke-warm water first to stop the burning. Leave blisters intact. Silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) cream is specifically for burns—helps cool & prevent infections—but may be by prescription only. If burn involves much of hand or other large areas, seek emergency help at once to prevent complications. ...Read more

Yes, i burnt my hand on a frying pan, it hurts started to burn again.. What do I do?

Apply ice: Ice can help even applied later. The thing to do for any burn, immediately, is to grab a pack of frozen vegetables or an ice pack or ice in a baggie and apply it for 15 minutes to the burned area. 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

What's the best way to make a 2nd degree burn on the palm of your hand and fingers stop hurting?

Ice!: Apply cold water or ice - ice will hurt the first minute or so, but then should help a lot. If you haven't seen a doctor, get it checked - 2nd degree burns on the hand can lead to troublesome movement problems later, and they also can prescribe burn cream & pain meds. Naproxen or Ibuprofen in the meantime should also help, as long as you have no reasons to avoid those meds. ...Read more

Basal cancer on hand. Derm biop with scoop&burn and now wants to do radiation to make sure it's gone. Is this the best method of treatmt. ?

Depends: This depends on the specific situation. If the basal cell is a more aggressive form ("morpheiform" or "desmoplasatic") the scraping and burning procedure ("ED&C") may be insufficient. In these cases an excision or Mohs surgery may be necessary. Radiation is usually not necessary for the treatment of basal cell skin cancers except in unusual or very large cases. ...Read more

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

Hi the other day while i was baking. My wrist hit a hot rack in the oven, and i got a pretty bad burn? What's the best way to get rid of the scar?

Depends in deprh: Superficial (1st degree) burns with redness require minimal treatment with an ointment & possible nsaids (if not sensitive). Partial thickness burns (2nd & 3rd degree) with blisters must be treated with topical antibiotics (bacitracin for face - silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) for body) if not allergic in order to minimize the risk of infection which may increase the amount of tissue damage. Sulfamylon for ear eschars. ...Read more
