I don't think my forearm made contact for more than a second, but yowwza...that hurt! I stuck my arm under the cold running water for many minutes. When I looked at it, the skin wasn't even pink. But it was still painful and gave my skin this sensitivity thing. Where was the mark? How was I supposed to gain any sympathy from anyone if I look unscathed? Hmph.
So, seeing as that it was "minor" I took the initiative to explore the Toothpaste option. I used a whitening gel because that's what was at the sink.
-Got all over my couch and clothes
-Tightened the skin on my forearm
-Gained me a little sympathy;) (heehee, such a drama queen!)
-8 hrs later, I removed the toothpaste and there was no blister, just a little red mark.
(5 hrs earlier I could see a distinct bump on the burn site)
