Give it annother hour of tender loving care, and it will be fine to type. After soaking in body temp water for an hour add a few lumps of ice. When it stops stinging leave your hand to dry without using a towel. (For some reason it helps) you should be good to go after that!Health Question & Answer

Human skin is a very resiliant thing. After healing, a minor steam burn will "go away" forever. Unless replaced by another steam burn, that is.Health Question & Answer
