I mentioned burning my fingers on my previous post. The first thing I did after taking the picture of the food was to run my fingers under cool water . . . mostly because the faucet was right there, and it felt like the right thing to do. 

The next thing I did was to dab on some Medihoney gel. Not sure if it was the gel or just the superficial nature of the injury, but BAM the pain went away, and in no time even the redness disappeared. 

I heard about Medihoney from my friend Susie who said that she uses it on her mom's bedsores. She said that it aids in healing. 

I got it from Amazon. You can check it out here. This tiny tube was $7.05. There is an expiration date embossed on the edge . . . mine is 05/2018. 


Here's the product description on Amazon:

j: wow I want one! After getting those burns on my legs, I'm scared to get any kind burns now. It hurts like heck. Thanks once again, you're so informative. BTW I'll stop by this coming Thu to get you the bowls. And pls. don't give me anything...I'm moving this week and I don't want any more stuff I gotta haul to the new place. I'm OD on 'stuff', no matter how cute or precious or edible. My mind is just going numb with too much stuffs everywhere. -N

Think I'll try it. I'm always looking for alternatives for antibiotic ointments.

Welcome, Cloudia and Kay!

Thanks Kat.

N, your burns did look painful. See you on Thursday!

You're welcome, Aunty.

Izsmom, I've always loved everything about honey.

awww man i wish you told me about this earlier. Randy got a mean cut on his foot from surfing and it looks pretty nasty. It's finally healing but he's only been using neosporin. I swear by the look of it the other day it looked like he had cellulitis!! :-O

Oh no, Les!!!!

When I was young my Mom taught me to hold an ice cube immediately on a burn. It seemed to help.

Have him pour hydrogen peroxide on the wound multiple times per day. When it foams up it tells you it's killing the infection.

Later as you pour it on and it does not foam, that means the infection has been killed.

It's painless and very effective.

Rubbing Alcohol works really well but it hurts on an open wound. If he is brave enough try that too for massive killing power!

Coral cut right? Make sure no coral pieces are in the foot. It can actually grow inside!

I like Spenco 2nd Skin Moist Burn Pads. I picked them at Longs based on a coworkers personal experience using them and kept them just in case. Can be hard to peel off the backing but once you get it on, it makes it feel like the burn is still under running water so it feels better. In my case and for my daughter's glue gun mishap it seemed to heal the burns faster too. It's not multi-purpose for other injuries though.

Have a good blog-cation!

Thanks Anon! Sounds like a good thing to have on hand. Will check it out next time I'm at Longs. And I've done the glue gun thing too!
