    Help! My dd touched a light bulb and burned her finger

    Could anyone suggest anything that will stop the pain. She has blisters on 3 of her fingers. I can tell that she doesn't need a doctor but it seems to hurt so bad. Is there any sort of pain reliever for this?
    Thanks.

    When my DS burned his wrist on the oven door, the Dr recommended running cool tap water over the burn as soon as possible to help take away some of the heat. Tylenol/Motrin to help with the pain.

    We ended up taking DS to the Dr as his burn ended up forming a pretty big blister that popped (it ended up being diagnosed as a 2nd degree burn). The Dr ended prescribing some stuff called silver sulfadine or something like that. He called it one step above neosporin. It would help heal the burn and provide some numbing relief. You could try calling the pharmacy to see if there is a non-prescription equivalent.

    Lots of cool tap water, Motrin and Neosporin CREAM...not the ointment, as that holds the heat and continues to cook the burn. I used to get burns from a big oven when I worked in a fast food restaurant. They always got infected. Pharmacist recommended the Neosporin cream and overnight the infection was gone. Apparently the ointment that I was using when it first happened was what caused the infection for me.

    Lavendar oil (get a reputable brand)

    I burned myself on a hot pan a few months ago and lavendar oil instantly stopped the pain.

    You need to go out and buy second skin moisture pads. DS just had a burn last week and this product is amazing! Even the doctor was surprised that I was able to keep the blister instact and the burn sterile for as long as I did. Now a week later and his second degree burn is just a scar.

    After applying the moisture pads (cutting them down to a small size) and some gauze he had absolutely no pain at all.

    You know, I just love this board. It's so supportive and helpful. We had a lamp on and turned it off. I don't know why but she reached for it and touched it. The burn isn't bad (2nd degree) but she must have cried for hours saying things like "Mommy, please make it stop hurting...please" before I

    1. Gave her Motrin
    2. Ran it under cold water
    3. Bought 2nd skin

    What a wonderful board. Now, I know to have 2nd skin in my medicine cabinet at all times. I used ice which I learned is not really suggested.

    Thanks everyone for your kind thoughts and your wonderful help!!

    Isn't second skin wonderful? Joey's burn was only on one finger but it was pretty bad. He wore the second skin for a week. YOu have to change it at least once/day and sometimes it does dry out and you have to put water on first to get it off. But, by the second day he was begging for the 2nd skin stuff.

    Hope it heals quickly!!
