Last evening while cooking dinner I received a steam burn on my palm, wrist and forearm. Hurt like crazy of course. I immediately put an ice pack on it but it still turned deep red and formed a few blisters. After the ice pack, I had a jar of vitamin e cream with tea tree oil in it. I slathered that on - very gently because it was so painful. I had been reading on this site about Extra Virgin Coconut Oi' and all of its wonders and decided to slather some of that on as well. Arm still was painful and red when I went to bed about 4 hours after the burn occured, so right before bed, I applied more coconut oil. I woke up at 3:30am and NO PAIN. In the morning I checked my arm and you really couldn't tell a burn had ever occured. Not sure if it was the tea tree oil, the coconut oil or the combination, but if I get burned again, I'm going to mix a few drops of tea tree oil in some EVCO and apply it.
