My daughter was burned

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
On Sunday My 17 year old daughter got 2nd degree burns. to her left hand and foot. I was at the hospital for a terrible migraine, we got a call my neighbour was bringing my daughter in. She some how dumped a pot of boiling hot soup, all over herself. She was able to quickly get her clothes off, and jump in a cold shower. She got some dry clothes on. ran to the neighbours barefoot in the snow. The top of her hand is covered in blisters. Her foot has a few tiny blisters. I take her in daily to get the bandages changed. The Doctor said they may pop the blisters on her hand tomorrow. They are huge. I am going to give her some pain medication , in case they do.

It sounds so painful, the poor dear. Be sure to keep on top of the pain meds because once the pain sets in, it takes a lot to stop it. My BIL was badly burned in a car crash and we learned that it was important to stay on top of it.

Oh poor thing! I spilled a pot of boiling water on my arm the day I was flying out to Malaysia and boy was it painful! Betadine helped a lot though.

I sure hope she gets better soon.

On the upside, it is good that she feels pain - if she had no pain, I would be worried. So that she feels better soon.

Poor girl. Vibes for her quick recovery.

It sounds like her quick thinking saved her a more serious injury!

Ouch. Hope she feels better soon and doesn't experience too much pain.

I worked in kitchens for about 12 years and have had some nasty burns. The worst were always the steam burns. Then there was the time I wasn't paying attention and dipped a couple of fingers into the deep fryer. Stupid....still didn't hurt as bad as some of the steam burns.

Poor thing My prayers are with her! I hope she heals up well! Are they giving her anything to control the pain? Poor thing!!!

I hope she feels better.
I got bad burns to both my hands at age 2 because I picked up a red hot iron. I had scars for a long time but now you can not tell.

Steam burns hurt more because the water particles are moving with more force than liquid water. They are particularly nasty - I hate those!

Being a welder, I am familiar with burns and they are NOT fun.
Vibes for your daughter
It sounds like she knew right what to do though

Poor, poor dear

Even a tiny burn is painful, so I can only imagine what she is going though.

Lots of and for her.

Quick healing for your daughter. I hope her pain is manageable with the meds. Burns are nasty!

When I was about 18 months old, I was following my dad around the backyard, barefooted. It was in July and he was building a shed out of some sheet metal. I stepped into a puddle and then onto the hot steel. My feet actually stuck and I put my hands down to try to take my feet off and they stuck also! My parents told me that both my feet was just one solid blister and my hands were covered with them! I am glad I don't remember the pain though. The doctors' said I wouldn't walk again without surgery, but I never had the surgery and walk just fine.

Hope her burns heal quickly!

Hope your daughter is doing well. You have to be thankful that there was snow. I bet that felt good on the foot. Please keep us posted.

Aww your poor poor daughter When i burnt my arm cold flannels done great on the burn , but needed to be changed regulary

I think you can also get some burn spray from the chemist called BURNEEZE that helped me loads but most of all ice cold compresses are great!

Sending some get well vibes for your daughter (and your migraine!). Burns are awfully painful - I spilt boiling coffee over my arm a few years ago and had to have hospital treatment so I sympathise. I hope it doesn't scar too much.

Oh, OUCH! I hope she feels better soon.



Hows your migraine?

She is doing a bit better today. Not as much pain. Her hand has swollen alot over night, so she now is in a sling. to keep her hand elevated. Home care will be changing her bandages starting tomorrow. The doctor said no school for this week at least. She is going to be unable to take gym class for 3 weeks. I am hoping this won't affect her graduation, Gym class is manditory. I am waiting for a call from the school. She is very upset (crying) her grad pictures are being taken tonight. They can't be rescheduled.

How horrible I know burns are icky. I've got a big scar from a 2nd-3rd degree burn on my left arm from where a lightbulb burnt it one night, blister burst immediately. I also have a nice little scar on my right arm from hot oil while pan frying. for her!

Oh the poor thing!! I hope she heals quickly!!

I can sympathize too. I got a friction burn on the tips of both my thumbs and index fingers in shop class in Junior high and I still don't have proper feeling in my right index finger. After reading all these posts here it seems like just about everyone must burn their self once in their lifetime!

Bless her heart, I know what agony a bad burn can be. Many good thoughts for the pain to subside quickly...
