I burned my hand (backside/wrist) on the oven door a few weeks ago. It was healing nicely. I was keeping it open because it was doing so well. I reached in a box and scraped off part of the skin covering the burn. I immediately put burn cream on it and covered it because I was at work. When I went home I uncovered it. I continued this for about a week, keeping it covered at work and uncovered at home. The other night I woke up in the middle of the night because my burn was very itch and painful. I had been scratching it in my sleep. The next day I started getting these blisters all around the perimeter of the burn. They have progressivly gotten bigger. None of the blisters have broken but they are very itchy and sore. I am thinking that I have some type of infection going on. I started putting anitbiotic ointment on it and I have been keeping it covered up again. It seems to be getting worse and I was unable to get in to see my Dr yesterday. I am getting worried. Any suggestions? I am going to the Dr on Monday but I do not want to be doing anything this weekend to make it worse.

  • Try getting a hold of a plant of Aleo Vera and cut it in half and heat it up in a pan or even just cut in half and put it there during the day and even during the night and that could help if you have an infection. I hope it works. Best wishes.
