Dear Concerned.,
Thanks for wrting to us.
For the bruise on your Lt Eyelid, for the first two days you may apply cold compresses and consume pain relievers such as NSAIDs(Ibuprofen/Diclofenac) after meals. The swelling will subside on its own otherwise also.
The Burn on the forearm can be treated with an open dressing with "Silver Sulfadiazine" cream or sold as Silverex Cream. If that is not available "Soframycin" Cream can also be used.If the burn is of very recent nature., be advised to take Inj Tetanus Toxoid 0.5 ml intramuscular over the Deltoid area.In addition a course of Antibiotics to prevent secondary infections.
Wish you a speedy recovery.,
Best Regards.,
