[YEA] Making candy apples for Halloween I did not resist the temptation to taste quick enough. I burned my finger to the point that it instantly blistered and went white. Just like most people I soaked it in cold water for 30min and realized I was not going to be able to do this all night so I checked for remedies on the computer and landed here. Baking soda did not help, but putting the foil on actually instantly gave relief! The pain in my finger came back after a few moments, but not near as bad. After about 10 more minutes it lessened and so on. My burn is bordering on 3rd degree and this really helped keep it tolerable. Thank you to all for the great tip.
