A few days ago I burned my stomach (Don't ask..) with a curling iron. The iron was on my skin for mere seconds and then I pulled it away. Now I have about an inch-long red mark on my stomach, and I want to know if I will have a scar from this and how I can treat it.
hi, i got a habit of burning my self with iron <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/bang.gif"> lol they do fade but u want to put antiseptic cream on till it heals so you dont get an infection take care <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/wave.gif">
If the curling iron was only there for a couple seconds I wouldn't think there would be a scar. I remember that my mom actually burned her forehead with her curling iron one time and she never developed a scar.

it won't leave a scar if you treat it right. i work in a salon, and have burned myself many of times. i usually just put some peroxide on it, to clean it, then put some burn cream on it, or neosporin. when i got one on my face before, i got my dog to lick it a few times a day, and it was cured in 2 days. sounds strange, but it is something in their spit. thats why there wounds clear up so fast. good luck!
