VERY IMPORTANT FOR YOU OR YOUR LOVED ONES.
I had the unpleasant experience of being burned to the second degree in my face and even my eyes by boiling water. Fortunately, my wife remembered having heard about egg white as the best cure. Indeed it was. She applied many coats of egg white all over my face immediately after the accident. In all she applied at least 20 coats, leaving each coat to dry for a few minutes. It creates a second skin that cuts 100% of the pain in a minute, so much that I was able to sleep the night it happened.
That new egg white skin contains an amazing amount of natural important vitamins. A friend also told her to give me abundant doses of vitamin C, D3, and E. I took at least 20,000 mg of Vitamin C per day, devided in 2000 to 3000 mg every hour. I didn't mind taking it at night. I had the best surprise after less then 5 days, to see my face completely healed, although I had lost the original skin. It was amazing, not even a single scar. My face skin looked even better than before as it's brand new. All my friends couldn't believe their eyes how fast it healed. I lost only 3 days of work. I have to mention that we went to the doctor, but only after I was healed just to double check if everything was ok. He said he wouldn't have done better and he even took note of what we did. Don't ever forget that amazing natural cure that can save pain and problem for you or your loved ones.

Best remedy for burns is Egg White, crack an egg into a bowl and stick your finger in. Done.
This is the first time that I have ever posted to a site like this, but I felt that I had to share my story. Last night my husband was cooking dinner and when he opened the oven door, my 19 month old son touched the oven. His poor little fingers blistered up and he began screaming. I put aloe vera on it, and he finally cried himself to sleep. I thought that I was going to have to take him to the doctor, but after reading the suggestions on this site, I decided that I had nothing to lose. While he was sleeping, I soaked paper towels in egg whites and placed it over the burns and wrapped it with an ace bandage. When he woke up this morning, there is no trace of a burn on his hand. I am totally amazed..... thank all of you so much for your posts.
EGG WHITES!!! I burned both my hands with hot oil while I was cooking. The burning would not STOP, after about 7 hours of constantly running to the ice water bowl I had created, I decided to try some home natural remedies as I desperately needed some relief of the awful burning stinging sensation. I read about egg whites and to my surprise it was working!! But it really worked, it took the stinging pain out right away, and I was able to then put on cream and a bandage. Thanks everyone for your experiences. I hope my review can help someone too!
Hi, in burns it is best to use cool running water not ice water as this causes vasoconstriction in the vessels too quickly... With associated complications and side effects. Also most proprietary creams are not suitable for burns as they are oil based. 'Bandages' tend to be fluffy so should be avoided.. Best option is film wrap or non adherent burns dressing.. Glad to hear you recovered using egg white.. And that's no yolk.. eh joke! keep well, keep safe.
So I burnt my whole left arm and right foot with 400 degree oil after making french fries and the first thing I did after burning myself was cover it in mustard then egg whites they both work great. I'm just lucky I was really drunk when I burned myself :p
I am so glad I found this website- or I would still be howling, "Mom, it HURTS!!! " You should try egg whites. First, I got a bowl of egg whites with a basting brush. Then, I spread the whites all over my burn. (by the way, I burned myself on the glass covering the fireplace. ) I also put plastic wrap and tin foil on the whites, but that's optional. Well, that didn't work, so I just poured the whites onto a plate and stuck my hand in. I kept it in there for about 20 minutes. Then, once, I stuck my hand out of the egg whites, and it stopped hurting. Go wash your hands, and you'll be out and playin' in no time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)
I burnt my left hand with boiling water on the palm and through the fingers through to the front of my hand. I tried to cool it down with a jug of cold water for about 2 hours but the pain just came back everytime I took it out of the water - and then I found this site. I would never have believed it but the egg whites have done the trick - I soaked my hand in them for half an hour and the pain is gone!! Unbelievable!! Thank you everyone who posted here - I would never have tried it if it wasn't for all these posts.

The egg whites worked to cure my burn! I read the aluminum foil reviews but got the impression with that method the pain is pretty bad for a bit before it gets better. It seemed to be that the relief is more immediate with the egg whites so decided to go with that remedy instead. Well it worked like a charm... Right away I had his cooling sense and the pain subsided. I put the whites of 2 eggs in a bowl and just immersed my finger in there. If I took my finger out the pain would be back in seconds but as soon as I put it back in the whites it would just dissappear. So I kept it dunked in for an hour while watching tv and by the time my show was done I could take it out with no pain. No blister formed at all. I'm a believer! Try egg whites.
I have been using egg whites on my burns for years. It is a miracle cure. my pain subsides almost immediately and it almost never blisters. When you put it on allow it to dry and dont wash off. it seals the burn and I believe that is the KEY. Try 1x and you will never use anything else again.

Eggsactly as described in this article.... Egg whites does take away the stinging and no blistering... I burnt my thumb and forefinger last night and no blistering and no pain... To all moms out there take not and if ever your little ones get burnt on something use this piece of advise asap. Oh and pass it along to your family, friends and co-workers! I have and they were surprised to see my burn did not blister and I have no pain...
My girlfriend spilled a over hot cup of black coffee that she had placed in the microwave for 2 minutes, the coffee spilled down her shirt and burned the middle of her breasts and unto the breast, the first thing she did was grab ice, I did not realize how bad the burn was. She started crying, when I finally convinced her to let me look at it, it was awful.
I ran to the computer and keyed bad burn, this site came up and there were a few different solutions, I looked at the largest YEA and found the egg white solution. I cracked about 4 eggs had her lay down and poured them on the burns, within 5 minutes, she told me that if felt much better. So now I am telling you EGG WHITES are the trick for the burn. She is just now going to bed, with dried eggwhite on her breast and chest and seriously she couldnt be happier. Thank you so much!

I tried the egg whites remedy today for somewhat severe burns to my fingertips. I had been holding ice to them for 20 - 30 minutes, but the pain was still killing me. Tried one hour of soaking in egg white then allowing to dry and cake on my fingers. The pain was gone after an hour, and the blisters that were forming first completely stopped forming, and then subsided. Am using those fingers now to type, and that was just this morning, less than 12 hours ago.
Last week I was in the kitchen draining noodles and lost my grip on the pot. I poured the still boiling noodles all over my right hand. I screamed and immediately let cold water run over it for about a minute and a half. I didn't know what to do for burns so I got some organic aloe vera gel out of the fridge and poured it over my hand which was very red and very painful. I put the gel in a bowl and kept my hand in it for about 5 minutes, but everytime I would lift my hand out, the horrible pain would return. My husband ran to the computer to see what the top cures were for burns. EGGWHITES. He cracked and seperated about six or seven cold egg whites into a bowl, and I put my burning hand it that instead. It felt immediately better! By this time, my hand was swelling a little and still very red and painful. I left my hand in the eggwhite mixture from eight pm to eleven pm, keeping my hand coated. By that time the pain was pretty much gone. I was tired and didnt want to sleep with my hand in the egg white bowl, so I coated my hand in the eggwhites and let it dry on my hand like a glove. I did that over and over til I had about three or four coats of dried egg whites on my hand, and then went to sleep like that. By morning I didnt know what to expect to see unter the egg white glove. I went to the bathroom to wash it off carefully. As all the egg whites disolved under the water, I quickly realized, there was no pain, no redness, no swelling and no scarring of any kind!!!! I use my right hand for everything for work and for making jewelry. This cure was a Godsend! Thank you earthclinic!!!!! God bless each of you who keeps this website up and running. My family loves you from the bottom of our hearts. I always tell everyone I know about you. They are believers too. Keep up the amazing work! Jennifer
Egg whites work wonderful for soothing a painful burn and help speed the healing process. Egg whites mixed in a baking soda paste is good too.

This is not true... If you go and do some research you will find that you must cool the burn first with cold water, not ice, cold running water and this is only for 1st and 2nd degree burns. 3rd degree burns, keep them breathing, cover with wet clothes but DO NOT immerse in water.
Egg whites can contain salmonella and can cause infection and even death. If you insist on using them as mentioned in one medical reference in the late 1890s... cool the burn with water first...
I got a burn on my arm from taking some food out of the oven. I tired using ice to relieve the pain but it is very short term. I looked on Earth Clinic and found egg whites, so I slightly beat the egg white, applied to the burn and put a small piece of paper towel over to hold egg whites to the skin. Surprisingly, the pain went away. After it dried, it came off the burn and I began to feel pain again, so I reapplied the egg white.
The next day I began applying Vit. E oil several times a day and it healed with no scar, just very light skin. Once spring came around the light area tanned and it's not noticeable anymore.
Egg whites for burns - a big yes! Anyone who cooks regularly will get a little burn every so often. While for most people a little burn will heal in a week or two, when I get a burn it will take about a year to heal, even for a slight burn.
I put egg white on a burn I got about a month ago. Within days it was healed with no mark. I was excited, but I thought maybe it was because it was a very minor burn. I felt I needed to try the cure again to be sure. Well I didn't do it on purpose, but a few weeks later, I got not one, but two burns from my wok, one day after the other. The burns were more substantial. The first burn mark is now completely healed a week after I got it. The scab on the second is starting to flake off, and I see that the skin is normal underneath. This is amazing, considering that I still have a mark from a similar burn from my wok that I got about 8 months ago! I will no longer go around with burn scars all the time!!
I've always wondered why my skin doesn't heal normally in the first place. It's not just burns, but cuts too. They do eventually heal, but take months instead of days. If anyone has any insight, I'd love to hear it. Thanks all!
Try the egg whites on your next burn. It not only helped me heal but took the pain away. And watch out for rogue woks!

Update: A few weeks ago, after one of the burns had healed completely, out of the blue it turned red again and blistered. Over the course of a few days the blister subsided and it rehealed, but now I do have a mark, like my other scars. This is really strange. How can a healed scar go back to being an open wound on its own? Does anyone have any idea how this could happen?

EGG WHITES CURED THE BURNS ON MY FACE IN MINUTES> I had lazer hair removal done on my face. I failed to mention that I had started hydrogen peroxide therapy to the technician before the treatment. This intensified the effects of the lazer on my skin. I kept ice on the burns for 7 hours and it was still burning badly. I got on EC and decided to try the eggwhite remedy. I soaked the eggwhite in papertowel and applied the papertowel to my face. Instantly the pain subsided. I fell asleep for an hour and woke up to no pain and no visible signs of ever having the burns. It was a miracle for me. Thank you earthclinic.
I must post a resounding YEAH for this cure. I burned myself badly on my iron, and only days later read about the egg white cure. I wish I had know about it then. I just put aloe on the burn and still have a scar. I have burned myself (minor) on a hot oven and hot pan handle since then and have put egg whites on the burn each time, and each time within 30 minutes, the burn disappeared.

Tom, have to disagree with your warning. Not long ago I spilled boiling/scalding water on my fingers. Really sore. Ran cold water over them for a minute or so while I tried to think/remember what to do. Pain was awful and I could see the fingers beginning to swell. I remembered the egg white solution. My fingers felt like they were being bitten by about 50 piranhas at this point. I separated the yoke from the white of one egg and put the white into a bowl and put my fingers into the cold -eggs were in 'fridge- egg white. Instant relief, and within minutes my fingers were getting their normal color back and the swelling went way down. I then soaked up the egg whites in a paper towel and wrapped that around my fingers and left that on for a few hours more. By evening there was no pain, no swelling everything was perfect. I know I would have had a very different outcome if I had not used the white of the egg.
I have to strongly disagree as well. I wanted to pour boiling water in my warm bottle and pour it over my fingers, it hurts so badly i put myfingers under the water with no relief at all, screaming to my husband to crack an egg and pour the egg white in a bowl. My nail start to peel, that was a bit scary. The moment i put my fingers in it, i had such a relief, nothing to compare with water. I left my fingers there for an hour, i was really scared to take them out, i thought it was going to blister anyway. I kept reading what else i could do, and decided to put aluminum foil over them. This morning no sign whatsoever that something happens. Amazing, i'm glad for the tip. Thank you

Egg Whites for SUNBURNS! Today my 11 year old daughter was attending a bday party at a waterpark and decided sunscreen wasn't that important. She is VERY VERY fair skinned (like her mom) and came home with a severe sunburn (already starting to blister). I had her bathe in cool water but I know from a few months ago this is a short term solution. A friend mentioned egg whites, I was thinking it might be a little crazy but decided to try. I used a basting brush to apply several layers and put a damp towel covering her back....out of ALL THE YEARS I have used Aloe Vera, you could STILL feel the heat rising off of the skin. Her skin is COOL TO THE TOUCH!!!! And her pain is VERY MUCH relieved compared to other times when other remedies didn't last!! The only reason I'm here is because earlier I figured I should at least look up this egg white idea to make sure it wasn't something that would cause further issues. So, for all of you who need a remedy for a SUNBURN, THIS IS THE BEST ONE SO FAR FOR US! :) THANK YOU!!!
Fathersday, i had the children over for dinner.Right before they got there i burned myself taking a pan out of the oven i was in a lot of pain i put a ice pack on in but the intense heat wouldnt leave. when every one left i came here, saw eggwhite remedy .i used only 1 egg white and soaked gauze in it, put it on my burn then wrapped in press n seal within 3 minutes the pain was completely gone. I never had any thing work so fast, and it never hurt again. Thank you!
