Cooking a piece of salmon tonight, with a honey mustard topping. As I was removing it from the pan to the table some of the hot honey mustard dripped on my finger, and immediately started to blister. I sat and ate dinner with my finger in a glass of ice water, changing it as soon as the ice melted. This was great until I removed my finger from the water. Then it would immediately start to burn again. I went to the Internet... And read page after page of home remedies until I spotted one that looked interesting. Honey mixed with flour to form a paste.

I mixed it in a small empty pharmacy pill bottle and dipped my finger in it. It burned for about 3-5 minutes more. Then stopped. I wiped off the gritty excess and left the mixture just on the blister. I now have a band-aid covering it, and it no longer burns. As a matter of fact, I'm typing this using the burned digit.

Can't tell you what a relief it is to know I'll be able to sleep tonight without attempting to keep my finger in a glass of ice water.
