Our expert says:
If the skin made blisters and is very red and sore, it is always better to let a doctor or clinic sister treat the wound. If you are not near a doctor or sister, you can clean the area with diluted antiseptic like Dettol or Savlon in luke warm water dribbled over the area (don't wipe) and then putting burnshield or silver sulfadiazine cream (not to be used in someone allergic to sulphas) thickly on the area and closing with clean paraffin gauze and bandage. Cream should be replaced at least once a day. Put the burnt area in a tub/bowl of luke warm water to soften the bandages before you remove it. You need to give painkillers as this can be very sore.
