Advice for Minor Burns:
- Cool the burn with cold water for at least 10 minutes and use a burns specific product such as Acriflex Cooling Burns Gel
- Avoid touching the burn directly or bursting any blisters to limit infection and scarring
- If required, cover the burn with a clean, non-fluffy material such as cling film to limit infection
Important: If the burn is larger than a postage stamp, it requires medical attention - seek advice from a pharmacist or doctor.
Advice for Major Burns:
- If possible, try to cool the burn immediately under running water for at least 10 minutes
- Dial 999 for an ambulance
- Whilst wearing disposable gloves, if available, remove jewellery, watch or clothing from the affected area - unless it is sticking to the skin
- Cover the burn with clean, non-fluffy material to protect from infection. Cloth, a clean plastic bag or cling film are ideal
On ALL burns DO NOT:
- Use lotions, ointments and creams other than those which clearly say that they are appropriate for burns.
- Put ice or very cold objects on the burn as damaged skin is very sensitive and it can make the pain worse
- Use adhesive or fluffy dressings
- Break or touch blisters
How it works:
Acriflex Cooling Burns Gel uses the physical process of osmosis to quickly ease the inflammation, rapidly cool skin tissues and support your skins healing process following a minor burn.
Acriflex soothes and cools the skin upon application, whilst creating an osmotic gradient which draws water into the epidermis from the dermis
Water molecules are drawn to the surface through osmosis, rehydrating the burn area and reducing redness and swelling
