    This has terrified me, but I was told it was the safest, best option.

    WELL

    I caught this steam burn on my hand a few days ago , from opening some soup that had been in microwave.

    And I just woke up, and that shit is now like, RIDICULOUSLY infected. Like it's all dark, with a halo of red skin, and it hurts like a motherfucker and looks like it's spreading.

    This types of shit was precisely what I was afraid of. FUCK. I better get to the dr quick before they wind up having to cut my thumb off or some shit, but, here's the thing: what can they DO? I mean, this medicine is a weekly shot that takes a couple of months to build up and kick in. So it's not like I can just, not take it tomorrow and my immune system will be back to normal. Also, I don't think you can take antibiotics while on this shit. I guess ima find out, though.

    At least this: dude to my bleak sense of humor, I think it's fucking hilarious.
    Steam burns are the worst. Use some triple antibiotic oinment and keep it covered. Heard a thing at work about slathering burns in mustard. A freind burned the shit out of himself on hot steel doing some forging. He was burned but not really that bad. Around this time I vwas chatting with some other cat who happened to say the same thing. Even read it a few times in fb cooks group im in. That said I've tried it myself and it seems to help but these have been fairly minor grease burns. Good luck.

    thanks, dude. It actually worked out: I slathered it with Two Metric Fucktons of Neosporin, and did see the dr, and now, it's close to all right.
    Man. I couldn't believe that shit. I had caught some milder steam burns working a stint at a cafeteria, but it was nothing like this.
    I didn't have any idea how bad I'd been burned until the next morning when I noticed, like, an ABSURDLY huge blister, both in length, and especially, height. It was like cartoonish. What happened with the puss was cartoonish. But it didn't HURT for a few days because, I guess, the nerve endings were burned?
    I say goddamn. This all happened because of an innocuous little cup of Sam's Choice Lime Flavored Chicken Tortilla Soup. I'd like to beat Sam's ass, lololololololol.
    Sorry if I'm rambling, but man, you're definitely right about the nastiness of steam burns. I've caught all kinds of burns in my absurd, rock and roll lifestyle, but the only thing that was worse than this shit was getting on the back of a Harley and cooking my leg on the muffler.

    OH MY GOD I’ve burned my calf on a motorcycle muffler, too!! I did it getting off the bike and I was wearing shorts (duh, never again). Second degree burn, blistered like a mofo, turned several shades of purple, had to apply polysporin and change the gauze and tape on it for over a week. Left a crazy fucking scab. Omg it was nuts!

    The only funnier one was when I lit the oven (pilot light didn’t work) and there was a little too much gas in the oven. I’d had about three White Russians at the time, so my judgment wasn’t too good. There was a big WHOOSH that went past my face. Then that smell of burning hair. My eyebrows were gone. So was the hair on my arms. A little while later, I looked in the mirror and saw that skin was peeling off my nose. I thought, wow, MICHAEL JACKSON PEPSI COMMERCIAL! I drove two blocks to the E.R. Two doctors and three nurses came in to laugh at me. A few told me they’d done it, too. It wasn’t nearly as bad as the bike burn, but I got a new stove from management!

    I’ve been Red Cross certified in First Aid twice: never put anything except water or polysporin / neosporin on a burn. That means no butter, no mustard, no vinegar, no other non-medical remedy.

    @elevenism : The blister often works to blunt pain. Always leave the blister alone. 1) because popping it can invite infection, and 2) it’ll hurt worse after that blister is gone!

    My crazy neighbor ... Dude has no life, apparently no job either, outside this 5 unit building. I'd get into it but I'm locked in until November. More sure to come. Also, floor turkey ...

    I've been vaping instead of smoking for some years now. My favorite flavor is Whatever Is On Actual Clearance, aka 15ml bottles of Zeus Juice for $.99 from the head shop in Amarillo. I'll get 30 or 40 of those when I'm in Amarillo, and it's always worked great, until today.

    I got a few bottles of a flavor called 57 Chevy. I figured it was some sort of metaphorical name: perhaps it was cherry flavored, or tasted like old school tobacco.

    I was wrong.

    THIS shit is an aberration. You guys know the smell of seat leather in those old mustangs? That's what this tastes like. It tastes like the inside of an old mustang smells.

    I like that SMELL, but it's not something I wish to INGEST, in any way, ever.
    I wonder who in the hell thought this was a good idea?
    It's ROUGH. It actually makes me sick to my stomach.

    "cancelled"

    I understand the idea of it, but seeing the term thrown around so often is starting to make me roll my eyes.

    It will eventually run its course and go away. I hope.

    @allegater and @onthewall2983 , can you guys please explain?
    I assume we aren't talking about tv shows/movies being cancelled.

    Edit: nevermind, I've got it. And I don't think it's going away anytime soon.
