Re: how to make burns heal fast

I went through the same thing a few weeks ago.

What I did was, run the burn under cool water for 10 min. Rub banana boat after sun lotion around the burn, not on it. To take out the sting. Then cover it with a burn dressing and Neosporin. Before each dressing change I would go through the same process. Banana boat, let it air for an hour then cover it with a dressing and Neosporin.
After a week or so the blister finally fell off. At night I would leave it uncovered. In the morning banana boat, then a dressing and Neosporin.

4 weeks later the burn is just about healed. The new skin is looking great and no scaring.

There really isn't anything you can do to speed up the process. Keep the burn clean so it doesn't get infected.

Re: how to make burns heal fast

The number one most best thing that I've found for burns like that is vitamin E. Straight up vitamin E. I got a burn on my wrist a few months ago and it started blistering right away. I went and popped a vitamin E gelcap and spread it on the burn, it healed quite quickly. The pain is inevitable with a burn and there's isn't much you can do about it except ease it by running it under cool water, although vitamin E tends to heal it quickly and it really soothes the burn. It leaves no scar either.
