hi all , yesterday at work I burned my wrist with boiling oil, well as you might know I work in a kitchen as a breakfast chef and I was heating some bacon up on a small tray and when I went to put it under the overhead grill it splashed back at me onto my left wrist, to say it hurt is an understatement! I put it under the cold running water for about 20 minutes but could not carry on with the breakfast as it was so sore. In the end put some cling film on with a cold paper towel on and then another cling film on and tried to carry on with my job. My boss who I have had a few runs in was not understanding saying it was my own fault, and it was my fault, but it did not take away the fact it was so hurting! it has small blisters on and my wrist is bright red like sunburn and very painful. Since then I went back to work today with nothing on my arm and caught my wrist on something I was carrying and it hurt a lot. Now I have a bandage on and its still hurting, but am having a flare up now, my fingers are swelling up and hurting a lot. my hand feels like it is on fire again. some of the blisters have burst, they are tiny blisters, but still hurt.
Do any of you have any suggestions if I can do anything different with my wrist, I have not been to the doctors, is it worth ringing my rummey nurse?
Sorry about the rant here, hope you are all keeping well and are pain free.
