Yes it's fricking hot!
It was 98 degrees today Hot hot hot.
This might sound crazy, dip the burn in salt water.
I was burned real bad in 1996, a 5 gallon gascan ( Full of Gas ) blew up in my face.
I received 2nd, and 3rd degree burns over 20% of my body.
My face, and both arms up to my sholders.
The nurses said to fill the tub with warm water, and put a cup of salt in it.
I thought it would hurt, but it felt so good.
The salt water made the pain go away while I was in the salt water.
