I hope its not festering...

This is my burn after the blister popped. I'm not sure how the blister popped. All I remember was looking down at it and realized my little arm nipple was no longer there.

The skin underneath is white and tender. Poking it with a toothpick elicited more pain than normal skin. Neosporin is applied liberally.

I noticed it has developed a sheen over the popped blister. It is sticky, sap like to the touch. Platelets trying to seal the skin? I hope its not pus.

Well, if it is pus... I wonder if my doctor would do the maggot-on-flesh treatment that I saw on TV?

burn boy

I was browning a pork tenderloin roast when the hot oil decided my arm is a better place to be. The blister grew to this size in less than 30 minutes.

I'm not sure what to do with it. I want to pop it with a toothpick. I get conflicting advice from people to either pop it or leave it along. Carolina said I should pop it and put toothpaste on it.

Now I'm just afraid I rub against something or someone.

The photo is taken with my Sony Ericsson W810i camera. At 2MP, this little cameraphone can almost replace the need for a real camera.
