The Question Club
I just had my first motorcycle ride... my first experience with a motorcycle at all actually, and unfortunately I wasn't warned about the muffler. |
Sooo, I now have a couple burns on my leg. The entire burn pretty much covers my calf, the worst of which is just a 5in x 2in section, which is starting to blister around the edges. I really don't think it's serious enough to go to the hospital, I'm just looking for first aid tips
I kept my leg under cold water in the shower for awhile, and I'm not sure what to do now. I've got a cold towel on it at the moment, but it's starting to hurt again. Should I just hop back in the shower? It didn't hurt at all under the running water... But I don't really want to be in the shower for hours. How long should I stay in?
Edit: Okay, question part two. I'm new to this state, and haven't found a doctor here yet. Should I just call up local clinics and ask if they're accepting new patients? Or do I just tell them I've got a burn and need to be seen? I do have insurance through my parents, but I've never had to find a doctor before... Not sure how you do it.
