I Didn't Know That - Burns

Another need to know home remedy.

First-Degree Burn Remedy - Best

The best home ready for a first-degree burn, which is the least dangerous and only burn you should treat without a doctor, is to immediately bathe the affected area with cold - not ice cold - water.  Then cover the burn with loose gauze and take an over-the-counter pain reliever, like aspirin or ibuprofin, according to the Mayo Clinic.

First-Degree Burn Remedy - Worse

Never put ice or butter on a burn.  Ice can further damage already sensitive skin tissue, and the grease found in butter prevents heat from leaving the skin, which can cause more damage, according to the Dermatology Clinic at the University of Arkansas for Medical Science.
