Burns are one of the nastiest injuries out there, but they are generally easy to treat – if you’re dealing with a first- or second-degree burn that is. Medical attention isn’t always readily available, but luckily, there are some natural remedies for burns found in your very kitchen.
Here are some natural home remedies for treating different kinds of burns that will save you a trip to the hospital. (h/t to MyFamilySurvivalPlan.com.)
It’s important to first understand what degree of burn you’re dealing with to determine the type of treatment it will need.
Now that you’ve assessed the category of burns you’re dealing with, here are a couple of natural home remedies that may help soothe burns. Note that these remedies may not be the best option for severe burns.
Treating burns is no easy task, and it helps if you are educated enough on different types of burns to determine the kind of treatment to apply, or if it’s best to let medical professionals handle it. The home remedies above can be applied to mild burns such as sunburn, and even burns from a flame source (except third-degree burns). (Related: High-dose vitamin D found to HEAL sunburns by activating skin repair genes… so why won’t dermatologists recommend vitamin D?)
However, burns from corrosive chemicals may need a different approach altogether, as chemicals tend to react to different kinds of substances and the home remedies might only worsen the burn. There are also burns from an electrical source, which may affect the heart as well as the skin.
