Ok first this isn't an std question. A couple weeks ago I burnt my hand on the oven, OUCH! It is almost healed but sometimes the scab really really itches. Is there a home remedy that works that will lessen the itchiness of the wound?

 

Hugs,

Greg

Oatmeal is a great way to relieve the itch.

 

For large areas an oatmeal bath is helpful. But, for a smaller area like your hand, I think you could just soak the hand in a pan with 1 qt of warm water and 1 cup of oatmeal.

 

An oatmeal paste, held in place with a gauze bandage, should work well at night if the itching is affecting your sleep.

 

Good luck.

I hesitate to advise without seeing the area. That being said, see if Neosporin Plus helps numb the area. If it doesn't try 1% hydrocortisone ointment (not cream), kept covered with plastic wrap. If that doesn't work, you'll have to see a doctor. Do you have health insurance?

ALOE

 

Ever notice how many skin cremes contain aloe? There's a good reason for this, aloe helps burns and healing. You can buy a small plant for about $3.00 and keep it in your kitchen or where ever you have some sunlight. When you burn yourself, break off a small piece and rub the sap into the place where the burn is. Maybe not an open wound but if it's on the surface, just rub it in. It will help heal the burn and there will be no scarring. I don't know why it works but it does. Isn't nature wonderful?
