One of the first safety lessons we learn as kids is to stay away from fire. A lesson that turns instinctive for us as we grow up. And although our body automatically shrinks away from fire or any kind of intense heat, a minor burn here or there can’t always be avoided.
Getting burnt is definitely quite painful in the moment, but the aftermath of it is where the real trouble begins. Watching your skin blister and dry up as it heals can be worrying. Scarred skin and blisters from a scald or burn are not only painful, but interfere with daily life and can make going about your routine difficult. This is why everybody should be equipped with the basic burns and scalds first aid knowledge to be able to aid the burn to heal properly and ease the pain.
