Ive just recently been through the most scariest ordeal. On the 26th August 3 weeks ago, my mother burned her face and hands as the deep fryer caught ablaze and the kitchen stove caught fire. She tried to carry the fryer out of the kitchen which caused her to burn her hands and then made the mistake of throwing water over the fryer to put out the flames. This resulted in the flames splashing into her face. We rushed her to hospital where luckily she was treated immediately by a plastic surgeon. Later we found out that her hands had secondary burns and her face only superficial burns. Now 3 weeks later she is recovering but her face is a tone darker than usual. the doctor has assured us that she will return to her normal pigmentation within 6 months but she needs to stay out of sunlight completely. Has anyone experienced any of this, will she get her normal skin colour back? i guess im just looking for re-assurance, she was such a beautiful woman, I hate to see her in this pain..
