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.

ILS went really well thank you. Just to give some feedback, Martin the course trainer was brilliant. I have been on ILS courses before and have found the trainers to be a little full on and not really understand care giving and emergencies outside of acute NHS Hospital trusts. Martin understood the skills (and resources available) of nursing staff working in primary care in independent sectors and the situations that they may face.
