    Ok, I was making mommies buns and wanted them to get done to take the dog to the park. Took the two cookie sheets out of the oven. Then I wanted to move one of the sheets and grabbed it with my bare hand!! WTH?! Burned 3 fingers and it really REALLY burned/hurt. Sigh now I can’t knit. 😭 had my fingers soaking in cool water but whenever I took them out, they had their own heartbeat and burned a lot. Mom said put vaseline on them to block the air and bandaids. It worked!! Why didn’t I know that? Sigh

    Aloe is good for burns, too.

    Yes, but had no aloe. Only bacitracin, neosporin and vaseline. Geez.

    No judgment here, Kimbob–I’ve also absentmindedly grabbed a hot pan. Best wishes for quick healing. I’d hate to have my cross stitching interrupted like that.

    I didn’t know that about vaseline either!

    Sorry about your mishap, Kimbob, I never knew that about Vaseline either.

    Yeah, I put big globs on each burn and covered loosely with a bandaid. I couldn’t believe the relief. Mom said it prevents the air from hitting it which makes it burn. 😊 I don’t care what I take out of the oven from now on I’m putting gloves on BOTH hands. What a dope I am!

    I guess I’ll put Vaseline on my shopping list. I didn’t know it had a kitchen use.

    If you google it, there’s a lot of mixed opinion on whether Vaseline is good for burns. Several MD sites recommend against it.

    I’ve used honey on small burns. Doing so means remembering that the spot is sticky.

    I did read that also, Mike. My skin wasn’t broken so not sure if that’s what they’re referring to. All I know is that the deep burn stopped once I put on the vaseline. Last night I washed my hands and put bandaids on. I just have blisters now. Whew. Knitting today! Happy dance.

    I think the idea is to seal in moisture, which Vaseline or honey would do. However, it’s one of those “not for a serious burn” ideas.
