Our bodies are mainly composed of water, the most basic substance of life that is also an integral part of the healing process. If you have suffered a burn, cold water is the quickest and most effective way to soothe the pain and remove some of the “heat” from the injury. Soak a paper towel in cold water and apply it to the spot of the burn to get instant relief. More importantly, however, it is essential that you stay hydrated after a burn or any injury, as this can help to speed the healing process. Alternatively, you can also apply ice wrapped in a towel or compress to the burned skin. Protection Status
