Using ice to soothe a minor burn?


While ice may seem like a quick fix for a burn, it can actually worsen the injury by causing further tissue damage. Instead, treat minor burns at home by running cool (not cold) water over the affected area for at least 10-15 minutes to soothe the burn. Once dry, apply aloe vera gel or a sterile bandage, and seek medical attention if necessary. #BurnCare #FirstAidTips #StaySafe
