We have all kinds of firestarting equipment in our survival kits, but heat can hurt too. A guy at work was seriously burned the other day and it got me thinking...I don't have anything for treating burns in my first aid kit. I could do it with what I have, but I guess I don't know enough about what's available for medical treatment.
I've always followed the rule that less is better and keep wound dry. Absolutely no oils or ointments and keep open to air. My only options right now would be to clean with something??(suggestions) and cover with a dry gauze. What do you do in the case of a blister (caused by boiling water splashing on a hand for example)? The guy at work had to have his blister popped because of the extreme pressure it put on his hand.
So how about some advice on treating burns and post-burn care, especially in the field.
