I wanted some of this ointment just this past weekend. We had a weenie roast for the family, the first of the season, and had a small accident.
My little girl, who is five, wanted a hotdog so badly that she jerked the metal hotdog fork from her daddy. She went to jerk the dog off the stick, and got the metal instead. It was still really hot!
Bless her, we are so protective, she’s never been burned before now. She immediately went into some pretty extreme crying. When I got a look at her hand I saw why. She had burned right between her thumb and forefinger, but also lightly across two other fingers.
I just wanted to cry with her (well, maybe I did just a little bit). Since we had no Silvadene, I went with the next alternative – an aloe vera plant.
