On Saturday I was making Chicken and Dumplings for dinner, and some hot oil splattered as I was browning the chicken and hit my lip. I kept accidentally wiping off the blister as I would shower, and now it's ugly and red and tender.
What's the best thing to do at this point? Ouch....
It sounds like a burn so might just need to treat it like wise (ice) and let heal? Maybe some Aloe / Ice. Pure Aloe works like magic to stop burn pain. Then ofcourse it will need to heal up over time. It won't be pretty but, it will eventually. Try to keep clean so it doesn't get infected (if its a real bad burn).
Pop open a Vitamin E capsule before you go to bed.. goop it on good, it will heal twice as fast, and knit the skin 50% faster too.I swear by it on burns everytime!!.. and during the day.. add it once or twice and after every meal..hugsJoanne
Be careful with the medicated lip balm as it may contain an ingredient that would really hurt on the newly opened "skin" on the lip. I agree with the Vitamin E......I also would put a little TAO on it (triple antibiotic ointment.)
Not to provide support to FF&B, but my first thought when I saw the title of this post ... "What can I do about a hot oil blister on my lip?"... was, "Stop sucking on dipsticks!"
Then, took the time to read to posting. Agree, medicated (aloe) lip balm to keep it moist, so it isn't as prone to cracking. That, and time... Keep an eye open for infection .... Hope you heal up soon.
I agree with Joanne about the Vitamin E. Also with Lisa, about the medicated lip balm. I tend to get chapped lips in winter and know that most of the medicated lip balms sting. And that's just on chapped lips, Can't help but think it would really hurt on the burn.
If the burn is in a place where you are not likely to ingest whatever you put on it, I also really suggest using Neosporin Plus. It is medicated, AND it has an anesthetic in it to decrease the pain. I've found that it really helps wounds heal.
