Since burns are one of the most common household injuries, you have probably experienced burning yourself on more than one occasion. You remember the painful sensation, the redness, and swelling, even the blistering.
Burns can be caused by thermal, electrical, chemical, or electromagnetic energy. We will review more about burns further in this article.
According to Hopkins Medicine, smoking and open flame are the leading causes of burn injury for older adults, whereas scalding is the leading cause of burns for children. The populations at risk for burn injury are infants and older adults.
Having an effective burn treatment solution in your home’s first aid kit is essential. Whether you have a painful first-degree burn that can easily be treated at home, sunburns, radiation burns, and even second- or third-degree burns, it’s important to find a solution that will reduce the pain, disinfect the affected area and decrease scarring.
Thankfully, there is a simple remedy that you can add to your home’s first aid kit. It comes in the form of a spray for burn treatment.
What is Burn Treatment Spray?
Burn Treatment Spray is a non-toxic formula made of stabilized oxygen molecules in a solution of sodium chloride carbonate and sulfate with glycerin. It has been shown to work effectively on 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-degree burns by reducing pain and protecting the area from infection by disinfecting it.
ION Burn Treatment is one of the best burn treatment sprays on the market. The Mexican Red Cross has recognized it as an effective pain killer and disinfectant for burns. Having an effective burn treatment at your fingertips is a must for any emergency or preparedness kit, whether you keep it at home or take it with you when you travel.
Degrees and Types of Burns
Burns are typically classified by degrees. This is determined by how deeply they penetrate the surface of the skin. Besides being the largest organ in our body, the skin is made up of layers that each have their own functions. The three important layers to know are the dermis, the epidermis, and the subcutis.
These are the most common types of burns. They are superficial, meaning they affect only the outer layer of skin (the epidermis). Maybe you burned yourself on the stove or oven or experienced a burn that is painful, red, and has some swelling but is not deep. The epidermis has sublayers that protect the body by keeping external substances out and keeping the body fluid in, creating new skin cells, and pushing them to the surface. This layer also has cells that produce skin pigment (melanin).
These are partial-thickness burns with pain, redness, swelling, and blistering. The second layer of skin is called the dermis. The dermis includes blood vessels, lymph vessels, hair follicles, sweat glands, collagen, fibroblasts, and nerves. ION Burn Spray Treatment works for these burns. We also recommend notifying your healthcare provider to see if you need medical attention as well.
These are known as full-thickness burns because they penetrate the outer layer of skin and can damage tissues from the inner layers. The deepest layer of skin is called the subcutis, which consists of collagen and fat cells, conserves the body’s heat, and also acts as an internal “shock absorber”.
There are four types of burns that you can experience:
- Thermal burns come from heat sources that raise the skin’s temperature and tissues, causing cell death or charring. This includes hot metals, scalding liquids, steam, and flames that come in contact with the skin.
- Radiation burns come from prolonged exposure to ultraviolet rays, either from the sun or another source of radiation.
- Chemical burns come from the skin’s contact to strong acids, alkalies, or detergents.
- Electrical burns come from an electrical current, either alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC)
How to Treat Minor Burns
As mentioned above, ION Burn Treatment can be applied to burns ranging from sunburns to burns that have blisters. (Don’t break the blisters!)
To use ION’s Burn Treatment Spray, simply spray the burn liberally. You should feel some pain relief very quickly. When you begin to feel the pain returning, apply some more spray. This will speed up the healing process and protect you from infection.
It is important to remember that for second-and third-degree burns, in addition to using ION Burn Treatment spray, we recommend contacting your healthcare provider to make sure you don’t require medical attention as sometimes the deeper layers of tissue can be affected.
A word of caution: Don’t put butter, oils, eggs, toothpaste, or ice on the burn. These home remedies can actually cause more discomfort and even put you at risk of infection.
In any case, having an effective burn treatment spray on hand will assist your body by decreasing the pain and providing protection from infections. You can even use this burn treatment spray for infections, like sore throats! Order yours today!
