i burned the space between my thumb and index finger on the top of my hand on the top on the toaster oven 3 days ago. the skin immediately turned brown/grey. i kept it covered with a band aid and ABX ointment. it never blistered. it's been peeling off slowly and i caught something on it after a shower and pulled a bunch of skin off. this afternoon i noticed some red streaking starting to go up my hand to wards my heart. the streaks are awkwardly shaped so i know it's not from the band aid adhesive. there's some minor swelling, almost not notable. i'm trying to get pictures but my camera is to heavy to use with one hand. i'm calling my mom(RN) so she can some look at it. i don't even know if we have insurance right now(in between jobs). is there anything i can do right this moment? obviously antibiotic ointment wasn't enough. TTO? poultice?
