i just burned the HELL out of my finger. literally just - i'm running my one hand under cold water at the sink & typing with the other.

this is what comes of trying to pretend a kitchen towel is just as good as an oven mitt. newsflash: it's not. it has gaps. your hand will touch the metal of the rack and it will hurt like hell.

it already has a blister. :(

any burn treatment tips?

    keep that finger in a bowl of cold water--ice ice cold--for as long as possible. make the water as cold as you can stand it, and don't let that finger out until you go to bed. if you burned it as badly as it sounds, the bowl of cold water trick might be able to speed up the healing, and it also should help with the pain. good luck!

    when I was a kid, I lit a model rocket motor in my hand. really BAD idea. burned horribly. I slept with my hand in a glass of water because it hurt so much. by the morning, I was pain free and no blister or anything.
