As enjoyable and satisfying as hot chicken soup can be, you need to be prepared, in case of an unexpected turn of events!
We cannot avoid burns, but if we know what to do immediately, we can avoid severe burns, whether from hot chicken soup or other liquids.
If that boiling “Jewish penicillin” unexpectedly splashes on you, the most important thing is to prevent tissue damage of the deep layers of skin.
If unattended, a 1st degree burn can domino into a 2nd degree burn. It can even go from 2nd degree to 3rd degree. When reaching that point, hospitals in Israel wait two weeks for the burn to heal or proceed to the next step: a skin graft.
Follow these proven steps from our Immediate Response to Burns education, to reduce pain, trauma, scarring and even the need for a skin graft.
PLASTIC WRAP: Immediately cover just the burn for 10 minutes. This will draw out the heat, stop the pain & minimize tissue damage.
ALUMINUM FOIL: No plastic wrap on hand? Cover the burn, then lift the foil for one second every minute for 10-15 minutes to let the heat escape.
IF THE BURN STILL HURTS, CHOOSE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING:
WHITE POTATOES: Grate & apply 1” high & cover with plastic wrap. Change when the potatoes get hot. Re-apply until the pain is gone.
HONEY: Apply & re-apply every hr. until the pain is gone.
PURE ALOE VERA: Apply & re-apply until the pain is gone.
ONIONS: Apply a slice or its juice until the pain is gone.
As always, feel free to contact me below, for further information.
