Burns suck -- Sunburns, contact burns, chemical burns, electrical burns. Having been a Firefighter/EMT, I experienced a few myself and many times with patients.

As Johnny said, keep it from getting infected. Taking a shower is the worst -- warm anything irritates it. If that gets to you, tape a plastic bag around your wrist to protect hand from the heat and keep it dry and elevated. Change dressings frequently and use a non-stick kind (Telfa is a good brand). Wrap loosely with gauze. Use creams carefully.

Let us know if it's second degree. (blisters, oozing, etc). Stay hydrated too.

Take care,
