People do experience small burns at home, especially in the kitchen. There are numerous home remedies for burns you can utilize without taking a trip to the pharmacy.
1. Baking Soda
Baking soda is simple option that could dissipate the pain away. Just mix some baking soda with water to make a paste, and apply the paste to the burned area. After drying, rinse (literally) and repeat.
2. Banana peels
Sometimes, placing a banana peel on the burned area of the skin till it becomes black has proved beneficial for burn injuries.
3. Aloe Vera
Apply aloe Vera gel on the burn. Its soothing and rejuvenating properties will help cool the burned skin. Fresh aloe vera quickly soothes painful burns and often heals even serious burns with little or no scarring.
4. Tea Bags
Place 2-3 tea bags under a spout of cold water, then applying the liquid. You can also make a stay-in-place poultice using 2-3 wet tea bags if you’re on the go. Try using black tea, as the tannic acid in in the tea can reduce pain significantly.
Vinegar has the potential to offer immediate relief. Just soak a cotton ball in white vinegar and apply to the burn. You might also do a compress soaked in vinegar and water. It helps prevent infection by killing potential pathogens and helps burns to heal faster.
