Burns: When to seek medical help?
I burnt myself on the stove and it's still burning almost thirty minutes later. I ran it under cold water and that helped a little but it's very painful. There's a huge blister (about 1 1/2 inches in length by 1/2 inch in width) forming and its very red. Is this something I can take care of myself or should I run down to the prompt care center and have someone look at it?
                     




Bad Dad
As long as the blister is not broken, especially by you or someone else, I would leave ti alone. It will break when it is ready and the tissue underneath starts to heal. If the blister is broken shortly after the burn then you have a real risk of infection. I assume you put it in ice water or used ice cubes immediately. You need to cover it with sterile non stick gauze and no ointments or creams if it is broken. A pain spray is ok. If after 1 day it shows marked redness around the burn and pronounced swelling, then you can apply some antibiotic cream or ointment and non stick bandage and change daily.
