No more pain on hands with spatters from cooking. If you happen to get a painful scald, splatter on your hand while cooking slice an onion and keep it on for awhile. The onion immediately takes the pain away a wonderful relief. One may try onions for possible sunburn or other ideas for pain.

Aloe Jelly from the Aloe Vera plant is what I use. I get it from www.aloetherapy.com. If I get it on fast enough, no blisters. No pain and no smelly hands. Aloe has been used as a Medecional plant for centurys. I won't be without it for burns, sunburn, cuts, insect bites and ect.

Keep a bottle of Aloe Vera Gel (not lotion) in the kitchen. This is available at Wal-mart or most drug stores. If you have an Aloe plant, this is even better - just break off a piece of the leaf and squeeze out the gel. This relieves the pain and prevents blisters.

I agree! Egg Whites are my choice over all others! This is a tip used in restaurants. I had a huge burn (2in X 3 in) on my inside lower arm which was very painful. I researched on line and found out about eggwhites Applied it and the pain abated almost instantly. Continued to reapply it and there was no scarring or infection.

You cannot tell that it was ever there, despite the fact that it was at least a half inch high blister that sloshed. (Sorry to share that detail.) I have used egg whites since and have found the pain to disappear and never any scarring. I have also used fresh mushrooms which help under a bandage, but the look and healing time is different.

According to Snopes, using egg whites is NOT the secret! It's running cold water on the burn, also note that FLOUR doesn't work either. Please copy and paste this link into your browser and read it:

If it is a minor burn I find that running warm water over it hurts for a moment but then it feels better when you take you burn out of the warm water because the air cools it cold water feels good at the time but when

it warms up it hurts worse, so soak in warm water and then it will stop hurting when you let cool air to it!
