Anyone want to comment? For second and third degree burns?? I would asume
foam not gel. I would want a second opinion from those with medical training
From the several professional cooks I know I learned and have used on myself,
is mustard (any brand- although it gives you a craving for hot dogs;-) on
first degree burns from cooking. Put in on, and leave it till completely dry.
