I went to the doctor last week, he diagnosed my burn as a third degree burn. Told me to keep it clean, covered and moist with burn gel or aloe Vera. He gave me antibiotics as it s infected. It s only about 1/4 inch round, from 290 degree hot candy splashing up onto my arm. Because the infection is not going away, should I be trying to dry it out? Something is wrong. He did say it would take weeks to heal.
