BUTTER ON A BURN
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST


I remember as a child receiving a burn from our gas heater in the middle of winter, the very first thing my mom did was run and get the butter and spread it all over my arm. I still remember the pain! But, of course, she always listened to old wive's tales as did my grandmother, my sister, and so and so forth.

The real truth about putting butter or anything greasy such as lotion on a burn is not the thing to do. The lotion, butter, or other greasy substances actually hold in the heat, causing the burn to become worse. I do not really remember my burn getting worse, but it was sore for quite a few days.

For most common burns, unless they are severe, the best thing to do is to use a cool cloth or even the juice from an Aloe Vera plant if you do not have any burn cream or ointment in the house. Do not put ice on a burn however, just something a bit cool. A cool cloth or even running cool water over a burn will reduce the heat and may even minimize the damage to the skin.
