Curling Tong Burn On My Neck

Posted , 5 users are following.

I burnt my neck 4 days ago it has started to scab and it's a dark brown colour .. it's really starting to itch and looks really bad because of the colouring. I'm feeling really paranoid and upset about it .. will it scar? Will it stay this colour? Wish I could post a picture ...

      I burnt my neck. Will the scar fade over time? How long does it take to heal? I'm so clumsy and it just upsets me as it's not exactly somewhere where I can cover 😩

      I don't know the differenc between a wet or dry burn? I burnt it using the curling tongs so a dry burn? It's in the side of my neck. I went into boots pharmacy but they didn't really look at it as in examine it but they could see it. They gave me savlon advanced healing cream.

      Thank you for the reassurance ... can already see a little difference since using the cream .. it's just an ugly sight during the healing process. Suppose it's got to get worse before it gets better right?! Loool ??

      The only time I touch it is when I'm cleaning it to apply the lotion and applying the lotion ...! Definitely won't be using them anytime soon .. I have had Burn from hair appliances before but usually on legs or hands where they've dropped so this has put me off.

      Thanks again for your reassurance ??

    i burned my arm badly once and was told you put on aloe vera plant juice. I have not a single scare. You can buy it in a bottle, keep it in the frig or you can get a plant and cut a piece off and rub it on. Do it several times a day. smile

      put it on several times a day till it is gone. it is best to use it the second the burn happens, but it iwll still heal.  You can drink it too for internal healing too, but it tastes nasty.
