    Hmm

    I have heard that the pure oxygen that we use can speed up the healing process of burns. I asked a doctor once about his oxygen vs ours. He said it is the same except his has a sticker on it saying it is certified. I burnt my fingers pretty bad today.

    After cold water, just let them get air and ride it out with Tylenol

    I seem to remember something about vitamin E helping to heal burns. Does Lucy have any cream with that?

    Doesn't get much better than pure Aloe for the first day. It goes in and doesn't hold heat on it.

    I sprayed wd-40 on them for the moment. Seems to help. Damn the stupid stuff we do when we get in a hurry to finish.

    Roy I was told once back in the early 70's when I first started out the difference was medical oxygen was a "little" cleaner what that meant who knows but I was told that by a Doc. also.

    Hope your ok roy. Medical oxygen is filtered to a finer micron level to remove any potential contaminants. Or so they say.

    Damn roy, hope it's not too bad. Keep it clean and use tons of aloe type cream to heal it faster. That sucks

    Somehow wd40 doesn't seem like a very good idea.
    Cool water at first and then like James said, ride it out.

    Yea, like laquer thinner, really not a medical application for it. Sounds like a Sat Nite Live skit actually........

    You have a burn????? Here, spray it with this flammable crap! Whoooooosh!
