Let me tell you a story.. some of you might find it stu**d while some might find it helpful, some might have heard about this while some..I don’t know! But I do hope you leave a comment below and tell me what you think? now, let’s get started..
About a week ago, I craved for hotdogs.. (yes, hotdog) and I usually fry my hotdogs. It just tastes better cooking it that way. However, because of me rushing things..very impatient.. I had to cook them frozen under a very hot oil and high temp.. uhhuuuhh.. very impatient.. 😛
Now, when I tried breaking them apart with a fork it broke into half and the fork went straight to the pan and the oil went all over and a huge amount of oil went to my hand.. Yup! it did hurt and I almost panicked. I was thinking of washing them with cold water but I was scared that my skin might come off ???? so I went ahead and wiped them off and went to get some toothpaste.. Yup! toothpaste because I heard they help when you burn yourself. But, I remembered our toothpaste has mint and it’s also a whitening toothpaste so I decided not to use it as it might irritate my skin even more.
After a drama moment with tears all over my face (LOL), I did recall that my mom used to use tomato when she gets burned while cooking. Luckily we have some tomatoes in our refrigerator so I had to use them right away. When my husband saw me using the tomato he then told me to apply Neosporin…applying Neosporin is the worst idea ever!!!! OMG..😱 It felt like my hand was on fire🔥 or was poured with a gallon of hot sauce or I don’t even know how to describe it.. All I can remember is I almost passed out..👷 I ended up washing my hand and went back to applying the tomato. 🍅🍅
I tried browsing online to find the best home remedies for burns but none of the things mentioned can be found in our home at that very moment. Gladly, I listened to my mom when I was still back home and it paid off. It’s actually healing so much better with no blisters or “water bubbles”.
One last info.. I literally went to sleep with tomato on my hand.. LOL (TMI??)😜

So there you go.. I hope you learned something from this very unusual post of mine..👍
