Toothpaste really does work for burns. When I burn myself cooking, I put a thick layer on the burn and the next day when I take it off (if it hasn't already rubbed off), there is no burn mark left behind.
re: small burns and toothpaste -- YES!!!!!! Spread a little bit of toothpaste on a burn i got from bein a stupid kid and the burns stopped hurting after about 20 minutes. go get some toothpaste, rub some onto the burn, and it will sting, be better, sting, be better, but after a while the pain just stops.
I just burnt my hand while taking a pan out of the oven. I put toothpaste on it. After about 10 mins the pain is almost gone! It really works! I just smeared a good coating on.
Whatever small or severe burns, spread toothpaste on it and it will stop the burning sensation in ten to thirty minutes depending on the severity of the burn. After the toothpaste has dried, leave overnight and next morning the burning sensation would be gone. Mostly people use colgate toothpaste. All our families have always used this remedy since more than fifty years.
The cooling effect of toothpaste always calms down a fresh burn... Always works for me... and my mom who seems to burn her self alot working around the oven
If yu ever get a burn on any part of yr body use urine...It's known to heal the skin leaving no scar at all.. I've used it for years if I ever burn or cut myself. Once had a bad coffee burn on my hand ..I went into the bathroom, peed into a cup then poured that all over my burn.. I let it air dry and wow the pain was instantly gone. I even healed a burn I had in my forehead from my curling iron. The urine instantly helped heal the burn..xoxo
I burned my fingertip on a ceramic heater in my tortoise habitat. I read online about using vanilla extract so I tried it and it worked immediately!!! There is a flat bister today but no pain. Vanilla worked great. I used pure vanilla extract not the vanilla flavored extract ~ I don't know if both work.
Pure Vanilla Extract (remedy) on Small Burn (ailment): I acquired a small burn to a finger through a cooking mishap. I specifically googled for ways to stop the pain of a (not-third degree) burn, and found this website. I poured a small amount of pure vanilla extract directly on the burn and waited a few minutes. It appeared to have no effect, the pain quite pronounced and unchanged.
Putting a few drops of pure vanilla extract on a minor burn quickly will make the pain stop. You may need to reapply occasionally.
i used it on a burn it did not work at all.
I burn frequently because I am very fair skinned...redness, itching, blisters, peeling, the whole thing. Often. The best cure is the one my grandma made me do when I was young.
As soon as you notice the burn, get out of the sun and soak up some white vinegar with a cotton ball. Dab it on your burn. No measuring. Put it on straight out of the bottle. Don't wipe. Just dab.
Do this regularly and the burn will go away a lot sooner with little to no peeling. The sooner the better with this cure! Don't wait. Also, the smell subsides after a little while. Don't worry about smelling like a big pickle!
I have always known ACV is good for sunburn, one cup in a tub of water and the sunburn is gone! So, when I was at work alone and severly burned my hand, I put ACV in a sink of water with ice cubes. I had to wait until someone else came into work before I could go to the hospital. On and off for about an hour I kept soaking my burnt hand in the ACV solution. When I arrived at the hospital my hand was bandaged and treated and I was told to return the next day to have this treament repeated. The next day I went back to the hospital and as the bandages were removed, the doctor was shocked! The deep red welt, the blister and all signs of a burn were gone.I had only a pink line. When I explained I had used ACV and ice, the staff were amazed! It truly worked a miracle, where I would have had a scar and therapy, I had onle one day of discomfort. I thank my mother for this.
I burned my hand from the steam on my tea pot (I never knew how hot that can be!). I sat there with ice, and it still hurt. So I went on here and saw the ACV remedy for burns. I first tried it with gauze soaked in the ACV which was fine, but I wanted to type, so I put on some a white cotton glove (the kind you sleep in with moisturizer) and soaked it with the ACV. It took about an hour for the burning to go away. I took a nap and when I woke up not only had the pain dissapeared but there is nary a red spot on my hand! PS. That tea I was making was for a cold, so while I had the ACV out, I poured some into my water bottle & drank that, and have been sipping it all night. It is about six hours later and I am finally feeling a bit better.
Regular vinegar on a sunburn takes the pain out of a sunburn. Growing up in southern Rhode Island sunburns could be pretty severe. I was in a bar one day with a sunburned friend (He said you can't get burned because it was windy out) when the lady bartender suggested putting vinegar on it. Other than smelling like a french fry ( Rhode Islanders put vinegar on their fries) he felt a lot better some quick!
I was cutting some metal with a torch and forgot i had just cut it and laid it to the side and was cutting another piece when i put my hand down on the one i just got done, cutting the skin instantly... discolored to a sickly grey color from the burn - had a bottle of apple cider vinegar and water i had been drinking. i grabbed it and poured it on the burn. shortly after, most of the pain went away but amazingly it never blistered. worked for me.
