What can i put on my burned finger?

We’ve all been there before, reaching for that hot pot in the oven, grabbing that curling iron without realizing it’s still turned on. Suddenly your skin is sizzling and you’re left wondering what to do next.

Don’t panic! There are plenty of options for soothing your burned finger and getting back to business as usual.

First Things First

Before diving in headfirst with remedies, take a moment to assess the extent of the burn. Burns come in varying degrees:

  • First-degree burns affect only the outer layer of skin
  • Second-degree burns go deeper and may involve blistering
  • Third-degree burns can damage tissues below the skin

For minor first-degree burns just involving redness or swelling, run cool water over it immediately, but never use ice – we’re not fancy cocktails here! Continue applying cool water periodically throughout the day if need be will help relieve pain; avoid creams,buttercup!

If your burned area is larger than three inches or blistered – particularly on sensitive areas like fingers or toes – seek medical attention right away because a bandaid won’t cover this drama queen!
