Is this infected?

It's burns from boiling water


  1. OMG OW!!!! I know burns hurt SO fucking bad good luck sleeping :-( I don't think it's infected. Ice it, Ice it, Ice it

  2. It doesn't look infected, but you need to put antibiotic ointment (like neosporin) on it to ward off infection. Keeping it open and as dry as possible is a good idea too, but if you need to be around anything messy (uhhhh like gardening??) keep it covered with a bandage or taped-on gauze. Otherwise, it does look like it's healing (scabs are good)
