One study found that warm water reduces tissue damage and helps to quickly establish normal circulation in the damaged parts.
People always feel that burns incurred in cooking must be chilled with ice or cold running water to prevent blisters.
But a study published in the Journal of Plastic that deals with aesthetic surgery, suggests just the opposite!
It was revealed that the warm water reduces tissue damage.
Namely, during the 24 hours of the injury, with identical burns treated with hot water, they were barely noticeable.
“Cold water helps in reducing the pain because it cools the skin and nerve endings. But after 20 minutes the pain returns because the skin temperature was too low, says Reto Vetstein, a plastic surgeon from Basel and leader of the study.
Immediately after the burn happens, it should be applied under cold water, but only for one minute, and then hot water to stimulate circulation. The recommended temperature is from 20 to 30 degrees C.
