So I burned myself with ramen yesterday. 2nd degree, lots of blisters. wife and girlfriend insisted I go to the hospital, well I ain't paying that, so I boil a shirt, I get some duct tape, and I take some leaves from my aloe plant. today I'm at work, and my wife texts, asking how it is, I tell her it's fine, I just cleaned and redressed the wound with the trauma kit we have in the store. She then brought up the fact that I had to use a TRAUMA KIT to re-dress the burn. Maybe she has a point after all…

Yeah, I'm poly. I've been with my wife for 5 years, my girlfriend for 3. We all live together.

I hope you don't get an infection or scars
CainAuthor
I'll probably get a little scarring :/. But I've been gently rinsing and redressing it every 4 hours, so it probably won't get infected. Probably.
Escape
There are ointments to help prevent infection.

Escape, I'm using aloe right now. A nurse friend of mine said Neosporin was actually bad for recovery though :/
Escape
I throw Neosporin on everything, although I confess I don't bother unless I see it's starting to infect
CainAuthor
Escape, I'd say a stitch in time or an ounce of cure, but I'm also not going to the doctor so...

Not a fan of doctors either, if there are no red streaks it's fine 😉

Nice healthcare you got over there...
CainAuthor
Right? But what woulda happened anyway? 2 hours in a waiting room, a $500 visit, all for them to give me a $70 prescription for a burn spray with a little extra lidocaine and a tube of glorified Neosporin?

Cain, well.. where I come from people don't even think about this stuff as it would cost a few bucks to nothing and therefore no one needs to take care of their burns on their own, but rather get professional help and payed lieve from work to get themselves back on their feet...
Saя¿asmatron
Anyway.. hope you get better!

Saя¿asmatron, you've been on plag for awhile, I used to know where you come from, remind me?
