Ice or butter on a burn?

Butter, mayonnaise  or other types of grease may cause even more damage to tender skin and pulling clothing or other materials stuck to the burn could damage the tissue or pull the skin off completely. 15 Myths 15 weeks  like us to know more…

Remember…

DON’T use ice – can cause further damage to wound.

DON’T apply butter or ointments – can increase severity of burn.

DON’T break blisters – broken blisters are more vulnerable to infection.
