I got burned by boiling water.back of my body and half of it.
it's 1st degree and it is deep but it is not 2nd and 3rd degrees doctor said.
it happened 3 days ago and it's getting well but the problem of mine is that 3 of the blisters hasn't been healed and the skin over it has gone and i think the flesh part is now uncovered.
i used Alcohol (Ethanol) on it to prevent from infection and it was very bad irritating and after that, used the medicine the doctor gave me for scar and the one that is for preventing from infection.
but it hasn't healed up after 2 days so I'm worrying if it gets infected and still something watery keep coming from it out.please help me to find out that will it get infected even with the medics or no?should i see doctor again?or it get healed up fully??
P.S: medicines are:
1)Nitrofurazone-Najo 0.2%
2)phenytoin 1%
3)and a Burn ointment
