    Ok, I'm an idiot, and I just burned myself really bad...Besides running it under ice cold water for a long time, what else should I do? I can't remember my burn first aid!

    I've always used aloe to help with the pain. Hope you feel better soon and that it wasn't too serious...OUCH!

    Thanks...I'll be fine...not quite an ER worthy burn, but not far from it...It woulda been a lot worse had I not remembered the cold water thing...I had it under the faucet in less than 5 seconds...now I have and ice pack wrapped around it...it feels fine as long as it's cold...as soon as it warms up a bit it hurts like hell. Which makes typing pretty damn hard! :) Thanks again....I'll keep it cold and wet, I guess...hopefully it will stop hurting soon!

    Pop some Tylenol or something like that NOW, so it will lessen the pain you are most definitely going to feel for the next couple of hours. Keep taking it every 4 hours or whatever the recommendation is. Ice pack is good, so is the stuff mentioned above.

    Honey, what in the world did you DO??? :hug::

    You're gonna give me an idiot sign for this, but...I didn't realize that one of the burners on the stove had been left on, and I went to move something so I could clean the surface of the stove..my skin probably only made contact for a second or less...I feel like such a moron.

    Ibuprofen is now coursing through my system.

    That could happen to anyone, Corry! I've almost done that before myself. That's why I like gas stoves :mrgreen:

    Mine is a gas stove (I hate electric)...I was moving a skillet that was sitting on top of it. :(

    Hey...that is a good excuse not to clean!

    "Sorry honey...cleaning is a hazard to my health...once the apartment gets bad enough, I'll just move out!" :)
