The Mayo Clinic has some good advice regarding first-aid treatment for first-degree (minor) burn victims: "Cool the burn to help soothe the pain. Hold the burned area under cool (not cold) running water for 10 to 15 minutes or until the pain eases or apply a clean towel dampened with cool tap water."
"Remove rings or other tight items from the burned area. Try to do this quickly and gently, before the area swells."
"Don't break small blisters (no bigger than your little fingernail). If blisters break, gently clean the area with mild soap and water, apply an antibiotic ointment, and cover it with a nonstick gauze bandage."
"Apply moisturizer or aloe vera lotion or gel, which may provide relief in some cases." Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve brings tremendous relief in cases of first-degree burns and scalds and more. Cooling and soothing, the clay penetrates pores and other open areas of the skin.
The Mayo Clinic continues, “If needed, take an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others), naproxen sodium (Aleve) or acetaminophen (Tylenol). Consider a tetanus shot. Make sure that your tetanus booster is up to date. Doctors recommend people get a tetanus shot at least every 10 years.” Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve is the perfect resource to try, because it is inexpensive and free of side effects and drug interactions.
They advise victims to seek immediate medical help if the burn covers a large area of the body or if it involves much of the hands, feet, face, groin, buttocks or a major joint.
Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve is also effective in the treatment of psoriasis, eczema, itchy allergic rash, jock itch, insect bites and stings. It eliminates crusty white psoriasis and starts restoring the skin within just a few days of daily use. It helps draw out and dry up discharges and rashes, soothes, hastens healing, lessens scarring and helps prevent neuropathy.
Apply Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve to affected areas at least once a day after the burn incident. It can be used in a concentrated, thicker form or diluted with spring water. Do not cover it with bandages. It is okay to wear clothing, but let the salve dry first. Wear natural fabrics such as soft cotton, not synthetic fabrics such as polyester, next to affected skin.
For best results, remove existing salve before adding a fresh layer—sponge or blot it off, but do not use soap. It is okay to apply the new layer of Natural Findings DermaClear Skin Repair Salve while the skin is wet. Stored as directed, there is no expiration date.
