The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    If it's blistered, try not to pop the blisters. The fluid in the blisters remains sterile for about 48 hours and factors in it help promote healing of the tissue below it. Keep the skin clean with plain old soap and water. Oral antibiotics are not necessary. Vitamin C at a dose of about 2 grams a day has been suggested for larger burns, but it certainly won't hurt if you take it. The skin on the hands is pretty thick so it probably isn't too bad of a burn, despite the fact that it may hurt like hell. You may have just bought a week off from lifting. Think of it as Strategic Deconditioning.

    The theory on why salves are bad on burns is that the heat is trapped in the skin, making the burn more extensive. Plus if you put butter or Crisco on it, you're just adding more nutrients for bacteria to grow on. After the heat has dissipated from the burn, it doesn't matter if you put something like Polysporin or Neosporin on it.

    That reminds me of the time I spilled a pan of hot bacon grease, fresh out of the oven, on my hand at work a few years back.

    That wasn't fun.
