One of our loyal customers recently wrote to us about a terrifying incident she had while cooking. She tripped while carrying a pot of boiling water, spilling it on the palm of her hand and causing a tremendous amount of panic and pain. Accidents happen, and unfortunately, this one has happened to a lot of us. Millions of skin injuries are reported each year, and serious burns can result in long-term and permanent damage.
Water boils at 212-degrees Fahrenheit, which is enough to damage any skin tissue that it comes in contact with. The degree of the burn (first, second, or third) depends on how much of the skin tissue is destroyed. Thin layers of skin are most likely to develop third degree burns because they aren’t strong enough to protect the body’s delicate skin tissue.
Fortunately, our customer had a bottle our Bye Bye Burns in the medicine cabinet. She applied the topical spray to her burned hand, covered her hand to prevent it from rubbing off, and went to bed. Much to her surprise, there was no sign of a blister and the burnt skin had healed by morning.
Bye Bye Burns has proven effective not only for boiling water burns, like this one, but also for sunburns and contact burns from direct contact with hot surfaces. Without the hindrance of chemicals that prevent the body’s natural curative responses, this topical spray provides temporary relief from burn-induced blisters, eruptions, and inflammation.
We created our spray by combining natural homeopathic ingredients like belladonna, cantharis, ranunculus bulb, and urtica dioica with soothing, regenerative oils. Instead of facilitating the absorption of chemical antibiotics through the damaged skin, our 100% natural treatment promotes the rapid healing of damaged skin with naturally-occurring coconut oil, omega-3 shark liver oil, olive oil, and vitamin E.
Tips for Treating Boiling Water Burns
- Assess the damage and severity of the burn
- Run cool water on the burned skin to prevent further tissue damage
- Apply a topical treatment, like Seagate’s Bye Bye Burns, to prevent inflammation and relieve pain
- Loosely wrap the burn in a sterile gauze bandage to protect against infection
- Change the dressing daily and monitor for signs of infection
- If the burn does not heal after a few days, consult a medical professional
Burns happen when you least expect them. Fortunately, our customer was prepared and had a bottle of Bye Bye Burns in the cabinet when she needed it most. How stocked is your medicine cabinet? Are you as prepared as she was?
