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

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

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

Yes Read.: Alkaline solutions saponify the surface lipids, dissolve water-holding substances, break the cross-linkages of keratin, and cause swelling of cells. Soap, soda, ammonia, potassium and sodium hydroxides, cement, and chalk are examples of alkaline substances.
Solvents remove lipids and hygroscopic substances and damage cell membranes. Their irritating capacity depends upon their chemical structure:. ...Read more

Can any doc tell me what's the best treatment for 3rd degree burns?

If you truly have...: A 3rd-degree, or full-thickness, burn, unless it is very small or narrow and can heal in from the sides, it will need to be skin grafted to fully heal it. Partial-thickness (i.e., 2nd-degree) burns will heal in 1 to 3 weeks. If your wound is not fully healed after 3 weeks, you should see a general, plastic, or burn surgeon. ...Read more

Burn on thumb from hot steam. Very red. Looks patchy or maybe "future blisters" (hard to tell) Internet keeps saying hand burns need to be treated differently. What is best treatment and does being on hand change that? Pain is decreasing. Thanks

Size matters here: Any burn's seriousness & urgency of treatment depends on how big the wound is, what caused it, and how deep. Typically steam from a tea kettle or hot food will be first or second degree. The area, if small and getting less painful and is not surrounding the whole finger or a joint can be treated like any other minor burn. Silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) helps the pain (but is a prescription). Keep clean, protect area. ...Read more
