Dawg
can i get my burns wet?
I have two large blisters on my wrist I received from hot oil. I have covered them and am waiting for them to pop on their own, but I'd like to take a shower or bath. Would it be okay to get them wet briefly. I am thinking the blisters are very close to popping and that getting them wet would complete this phase. Then I can continue with the application of neosporin as suggested. I was mistakenly logged into my daughters account when I posted this question a few minutes ago, So had to post again in order to view the answers I receive. Thanks

Yes you can get burns wet. In fact the best treatment for minor burns is to run them under cold water soon after you burn yourself. It cools the burn and lessens the pain. The neosporin will heal them quite well once they pop

You can get them wet - just rebandage them after. After they pop - keep them clean and covered so you don't get them infected.
