Doc-- listen to creeper===and Beenthere---Get a good antibiotic burn ointment---cover the wound with the burn bandages--then a light gauze wrap---

Soak in a tub for half an hour once a day--loosen up and remove any loose scabs---wash with hydrogen peroxide---then wrap it with the burn bandage==

I was cooked up pretty good a few years back---no ugly scars and the healing went well---

Doc,

You really do need to visit a doctor at least to get some proper antibiotic cream as mention in the aritcle I have attached.

Mark

HOW DO I TREAT THE BURN?
  • First degree burns. For this type of burn, you do not need a prescription cream. You also do not need to use an antibiotic cream. One of the best treatments for first degree burns is aloe vera. Buy a bottle of 100% aloe gel and apply several times a day. Be sure to buy 100% aloe. Some bottles will say, "made with pure aloe", but only contain 10% aloe. Read the ingredients. Basically, it should only read aloe on the label. You can also use the juice from the leaf of an aloe plant, if you have one.
  • Second degree burns. Treating this type of burn is more complex. You should check with your doctor about how to treat your child's second-degree burns. Here are some general guidelines that we recommend. Twice a day do the following:
    • Rinse the area with comfortable temperature water. Use a sink or bathtub faucet. The stream of water will remove germs, dead skin, and debris.
    • Air dry.
    • Apply prescription burn cream called Silvadene (the generic equivalent is silver sulfadiazine). This is an antibiotic cream that has excellent healing properties, and is an important part of the burn treatment because it's very effective at preventing infection. You need to apply it aseptically; buy a package of sterile tongue depressors to use. Use a lot of cream, as if you were icing a cake. When you change the bandage, if all the cream is worn off or soaked in, then you didn't use enough. Silvadene contains silver, and you will notice a dark "tarnish" discoloration on the bandages.
    • Cover with a bandage. Your doctor may recommend a specific type of bandage. Typically a non-stick pad is placed over the cream (one brand name is Telfa), than a gauze is taped or wrapped around the area.
    • Stretch. If the burn is on an area of the body that stretches or pulls a lot (such as the palm of the hand or palm side of the fingers), the burned skin is at risk of healing too tight. This is called a contracture. In this type of area, it is very important to stretch this skin around ten times a day for one minute.
    • Cut away the blister after the blister pops on it's own. Your doctor may cut the dead blistered skin away. This will help prevent infection and will promote healing. If you have a large blister that pops after several days, then go back to see your doctor. He or she may want to cut it away.
    • Watch for infection. Call or see your doctor if you detect any foul-smelling greenish discharge from the burn, or see an expanding area of redness around the burn.
  • Third degree burns. Because of the seriousness and potential for scarring from this type of burn, it is recommended that you go to a burn center or ER for initial treatment, and then continue your follow-up care with a burn surgeon. We cannot put any general recommendations here for this type of burn.

If you get he burn bandages, remember that the ointment in them is flammable.

Nope, can't afford it. It's somewhat healing, getting smaller as the edges close in. I'm aware it's going to be a scar, not my first or last I'd have to suspect.

Still hurts but it's getting better.

I had that same redness on a much smaller wound. It was infected. bad. they put me on IV when I finally went into the hospital ( was travelling at the time ) spend the better part of a day there.

as I mentioned befre, this should be covered under the motorcyclist's insurance. you said it was a friend f yours bike, right?

and no such thing as can't afford to get an infection taken care of.

Although I had a few dirt bikes in my teenage years and a few road bikes during my early 20's, I don't own a bike and have no plans of getting one either. This is what it looks like now. No doctor.
