So, I accidentally scalded my left arm with very hot water; hot enough to make eba (a Nigerian meal) and this is what I did:
1. Dipped the arm in cool water almost immediately.
2. Applied honey on the affected area.
There are no scars and you would not know if I didn't tell you just by looking at it.
It also helps that my skin is relatively well-conditioned to hot water because I frequently take hot baths with water that pricks like a needle when it touches my skin.
My left arm feels a little bit stiff but it should be just fine.
Thank God for that.
You'll be just fine. Thats a perfect remedy. But when it has happen again(am prayin not to happen), apply salt first before applying d honey.ReplyDelete
Thanks Bako, but the salt will sting because of the iodine it contains. The hand is fine now, as good as before.Delete
