Applying Oil to Burns Help Them Heal Better
Many people have applied oil to burns for a long period of time, believing that it will help the wound heal faster due to its calming properties. However, this is not true because burns differ from any other type of wound. If anything, putting oil on burns will worsen the pain and trap the heat inside the wound.
To heal burns rapidly, it’s recommended to run cold water through the affected area for about 15-20 minutes and then cover the wound with clean gauze.
