Scalded Finger Skin Due To Exposure To Hot Steam?
Tonight I want to ask, just now my finger was exposed to hot steam on the ring finger. I accidentally grabbed my finger and it was rubbed by my hand and then peeled off. The peeled skin became sticky and black and the skin that was exposed became watery all the time. I experience burning and stinging. how do you solve it? thanks
Thanks for the question. Exposure to hot steam can cause skin burns. Burns can cause symptoms that vary from skin redness, skin / blisters, and charred skin. Pendritannya will also feel pain in the area of the affected skin. In general, when a burn occurs, the first thing you can do is to cool the area with plain water (not cold water or ice water) for 20-30 minutes. If there are blisters and peeling skin and black skin due to scorching, you should consult a doctor first, the doctor needs to assess the condition of this wound. Peeling skin is susceptible to infection, so optimal wound care is needed. After examining this wound, the doctor will suggest how to properly care for the wound and provide treatment if necessary. In the meantime, you can cover the wound with clean gauze and keep the wound clean. You can also take paracetamol if the pain gets worse.
