This exposes the entire body to the side effects of steroids, including avascular necrosis of the hip &/or shoulders, as well as osteoporosis.

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.
