Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Your doctor should have given you plenty of information on how to handle a wound like this.

We have a detailed article on exactly how to treat (the do's and also the dont's) second degree burns, you can find it here: http://www.empowher.com/burns/content/do-s-and-don-ts-treating-second-degree-burns

I hope you heal quickly, I know burns are terribly painful.
