Getting a burn is no joke. It stings, is painful and can even bring you to tears. Whatever the cause is – scalding hot water, the metal plate of the iron you accidentally bumped into or forgetting to wear kitchen mittens while picking up that wok, a burn needs immediate relief.
Unless you’re suffering from third degree burns brought about by chemicals, open fire and other more lethal causes, these home remedies will help relieve that minor burn sting.
The first thing you can do if you get a burn is to use cool water. Run cool water on the burned skin for at least 10 minutes. The cool temperature will help restrict the burn and the damage to a certain part and prevent it from spreading.
Pour some diluted vinegar on your burn. Vinegar is one of the oldest and most trusted home remedy for burns. Simply dilute vinegar with water in equal parts and apply it onto your burn by pouring directly or even soaking up the burned part with the mixture. Vinegar helps remove the sting and relaxes your skin too.
Apply aloe vera onto the burned skin. Gather some aloe vera leaves and split open. You can gently apply the gel onto your burned skin. Aloe vera can help kill the pain and aid in faster recovery from the skin burn.
Black tea can also help relieve skin burn. Using 2 or 3 tea bags, let seep in cool water and apply the tea to the burned skin.
