How to Treat Kitchen Burns Effectively: First Aid Burn Remedies

How to Treat Kitchen Burns Effectively: First Aid Burn Remedies

I’m sure many of you have been there: you’ve got multiple pans on the stove, you’re busy trying to prepare dinner when you burn yourself on one of the pans or have hot oil splash all over you.

The internet is full of advice of what to do for kitchen burns, some sage and some just plain oddball. Most sound incredibly messy involving bizarre ingredients or chemicals that you fear probably shouldn’t be applied to damaged skin (or undamaged skin for that matter). Very few of them sound like something that can be applied in seconds and won’t have you looking like you’ve emptied your entire condiment collection over yourself—not a good look for a dinner party!

You may ask yourself, “what is a first-degree burn?”: The burn is minor, but still painful. It will typically turn red and may swell or blister.

How to treat:

Step 1: Cool the burn to help soothe pain

Apply cold running water to cool a first degree burn for approximately 10 to 15 minutes or until pain subsides or eases. You can also use a clean dampened towel. Do not use ice or ice water, because it increases body heat loss and damages affected tissues.

Step 2: Remove jewelry or clothing from burn area

Try to do this as quickly and gently as possible before the affected area begins to swell. Examples: belts, bracelets, watches, or rings.

Step 3: Apply CUROXEN to the burn site

Apply CUROXEN first aid and cover it with nonstick gauze. The dressing does not need to be secured tightly. Tape the edges of the dressing with first aid tape

CUROXEN is the perfect solution for minor kitchen burns and scalds. A slick of this first-aid ointment helps to soothe the affected area quickly, allowing you to get right back to whipping up award-winning soufflés.

The ointment is totally natural and contains 100 percent organic ingredients. Oxygenated olive oil, calendula and lavender help to clean the area, ease the pain and speed up the healing process. There are no nasty chemicals or petroleum-based products in CUROXEN, so it won’t cause any allergic reactions.

 

Step 4: Take over-the-counter pain reliever

If pain continues you can take an OTC pain reliever such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others), naproxen sodium (Aleve) or acetaminophen (Tylenol, others).


Helpful Tips

  • Try to not pop blisters. If a blister does break, make sure to clean it with soap and water. Apply CUROXEN and cover it with nonstick gauze.
  • Consider a tetanus shot. Make sure that your tetanus booster is up to date. Doctors recommend people get a tetanus shot at least every 10 years.
  • Never put butter on a burn! Or any other strange condiments or chemicals.
  • Do not remove anything that is sticking to the burn site, such as clothing as this may cause further injury.
  • We recommend seeing a doctor for any burn that is second-degree or higher.

With these tips, you'll be back to creating culinary delights in no time, knowing that you're prepared to handle any unexpected accidents along the way.
