In brief: Kind of tricky

This question is a little tricky, because i don't know how you got the burn in the first place? Some people burn themselves when they are intoxicated -- makes it more likely to have accidents.
Also, i agree with dr. Weiner about the dehydration part. If you can't hold off drinking while your body heals from this burn, better take a look at your use of alcohol. Best wishes in getting well.
