Burn symptoms vary according to degree. In first degree burns the skin reddens, but only the top layer of the skin (epidermis) is affected. The skin may peel away in several days and usually heals quickly.
In second degree burns blisters are created due to damage to the deeper layer of the skin. Second degree burns usually heal without scarring.
In third degree burns the full thickness of the skin is damaged by the heat or fire, causing the affected area to appear charred or white. Tissues below (bones and muscles) the burn areas may also be exposed. Case of third degree burns requires the attention of a burn specialist in order to be properly treated.
Eat a high-protein diet for second and third degree burns to help repair damaged tissue. Also increase your intake of fluids and high-zinc foods, such as pumpkin seeds and oysters.
Mix the following together: vitamin A, vitamin E, essential fatty acids, zinc oxide, and aloe gel, and apply topically to the affected area. The following nutrients taken orally can also be helpful: vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
Prescription and non-prescription medication:
What non-prescription and prescription drugs are you taking? Your non-prescription and prescription are partially the reason that you have this illness or disease – you need to get off these medications but do so only under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner.
