hey priya - sorry to hear this :( u will need to go to a dr. my sister had spilled hot tea on her thigh 30 years ago so i remember. tc yaar. love to aunty. hope she feels better soon

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Hi priya..
Thats okay.. no need to panic.. and no need to apply anything on it.. if burning sensation or pain is there, just apply silverex ointment on it.. and simple oral antibiotics and painkillers are started..

Priya Sood

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa thank you so much. I was just planning to show Dr. There is no pain at all. It is smooth just some places are puffy. Shall I keep it open

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Yes, it will heal by its own.. just apply silverex ointment to fasten the process of healing.. keep it open always.. maximum it will take around a week to get dark..

Wish ur mom a speedy recovery...take care Priya Sood

Priya Sood

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa; thank you. There is water/ liquid a bit gathered under brown skin. Does it need to be removed?

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

No priya,,, it will dry up by its own.. better not to intervene the healing process by any means..
