Sounds to me like you are doing all the right things.. I was also burned in a similar fashion a few years back, and my burn did the same as yours is. What you DON'T want to see is drainage any color other than clear or pinkish, wound-color other than red/pink, noticeably fast/large swelling (whole wound, not just blisters), or fever. You have already been to the doctor and are doing as he says, using the cream and keeping it clean and dry. The pockets of water you get when showering might be uncomfortable until they dry on their own if left alone. It is okay, if there is already an opening (don't make one) to very gently push the water out (make sure your hands are clean). Do not do this if it hurts. Blessings - Blu
Everything you described is the normal healing process for a burn.
Thanks BluCrystal. I didn't notice any discoloration with the blisters drained. And the actual burn has been significantly hotter than my skin right next to it. But I'm thinking that is just normal to. It is no longer hot to the touch anymore. The pouches that fill with water aren't uncomfortable at all but the skin comes off when I shower. Hopefully this is normal also.
Thank you, Mrs Rios. Yes, dead skin soughing off will happen. This makes way for new skin to grow under it. Allow this to happen on it's own, without trying to 'help' it along by peeling it yourself. Your body will heal itself, maybe not as soon as you would like, but you must allow this to happen naturally, or you run the risk of infection by peeling skin off that is not ready to come off on its own. I recommend eating M&M's. :-) They always make ME feel better! Blessings - Blu
