How to treat minor firecracker related burns?

“The tip of a sparkler burns at a temperature of about 2,000 F, this is hot enough to cause melting of gold and third-degree burns.”

Following the safety tips we mentioned in our previous post will help you take precaution while bursting fire crackers; however accidents can occur despite all your care. Here are some things you can do if you get a minor burn from fire cracker:
-          Immediately run the burn under cold water for atleast 10 minutes. You can also place a cloth dipped in chilled water. Do not put ice or butter on the affected area as it will cause more pain, than provide relief.
-          While doing so remove any jewellery or clothing from the affected area.
-          Once cooled, cover the burnt area with a clean cloth of sterile gauge.
-          Aloe vera can be used later after the initial treatment. Aloe vera has soothing properties which reduces the chance of forming blisters.
-          If you don’t have aloe vera, you can also use raw potato or coconut oil to soothe the burn.
