Burnt fingers and arm

I burnt my arm at work last week and my fingers a few days later. I hit my arm with a hot pan and it hurt bad for about a day but now it looks as though it is charred or something and it doesnt hurt at all. I'm not sure what to think about that burn.

Also, I accidently grabbed a hot pan when I hurt my fingers and they hurt even worse for a while. I put ice on them, but now found out that I shouldnt have. I also put aloe plant on them and they haven't hurt since then, but actually they don't have much feeling at all. Should I be worried that I did something serious to them, or is the slight loss of feeling temporary?

Re: Burnt fingers and arm

Looks charred and has no feeling? That is bad. Go to a doctor TODAY, the ER if necessary.
