Burn from 200 degree wax over hand and forearm, so much better thanks to FireBurnDoctor #RUSHdoc

Lily's boyfriend called Fireburndoctor 23 minutes after Lily had poured 200 degree wax over the whole back of her hand and up the arm halfway to the elbow. The pain was an 8, with immediate blistering and bleeding where several layers of skin scraped away. An hour after calling Fireburndoctor, Lily reported that she had taken the ice off and the pain had fallen to 3-4 and the bleeding had stopped.

Lily's boyfriend emailed her report: "Hi! first let me apologize for the lateness of my reply. Thank you so much for helping. Lily is doing much better. She burned her hand and wrist by dumping 200 degree wax over it while making candles. She immediately ran cold water over it which, of course, hardened the wax effectively creating a cast, her flesh baking inside. She was in intense pain, and within minutes began blistering. She could stand the pain only by applying an ice pack. It was a little over a half hour by the time I called you. About fortyfive minutes later the pain had subsided and she could remove the ice pack. It left several small blisters, but the pain never returned. I don't know how you did it, but it didn't happen on its own, so you must be responsible!

Thank you again so much, and keep up the good work!"
