Burned my finger really bad *BREE* Due January 18 (boy); 1 child; Maryland 4852 posts

I just burned the shit out of my thumb taking a pan out of a 450 degree oven. Its blistering up the only thing helping the pain is running it under cool water. As soon as I take my hand away from the water the pain is excruciating. The actual burn is really small about 2 centimeters long but it f**king kills. What should I do? I can't take anything because I'm pregnant.

you can take tylenol. Keep ice on it. That sucks. I burned myself last night. Not as bad as your burn though :(

I agree tylenol put a cold cloth around it. Lay down and relax. If its worse in the morn go to an urgent care because toucan actually get tetanus from burns I u haven't had a shot in awhile. I got a bad burn at work from a pizza oven before and we were on vacation and it got Infected and so swollen my thumb went numb and I found an urgent care and I had to get antibiotics and a tetanus shot. They might give you antibiotics too because you don't want an infection while preg.

aloe vera works great for burns, we used mustard at the restaurant for burns too. My husband said flour or corn starch works great too
