Post How to treat rug burns?
- I'm sorry but i can't take it any more, i NEED help! ;__;

- I got very badly carpet burn from NebrasKon and it still hasn't healed up like it should. I have it on both of my legs. It itches like crazy, i can't sleep well at night, and i tried many things but they don't work. I'm wearing shorts often in my house so it can be exposed to air and i only cover it up when i go to places so people might not be wondering why my jeans are wet.

- Can some please help me? :(

{ { WARNING - GROSS DETAILS } }
My burn...
• looks like a scaly rash that looks dry but wet and has tiny scabs randomly place
• liquid and blood comes out a little everyday
• itches every often
• when i use medical materials to cover it when i'm going out, the tape sometimes leaves rash marks

- - - - - -
- Has anyone had past rug burn experience? If so, how big was it, how long it took to heal, and what did you do? Other then that... TIPS are very welcome!

Thanks~ ^_-b

Did a little google search and yahoo answers sometimes helps. Theres a few ideas in there you might want to try but if bad comes to worse, please do see a doctor.

May I ask how you got these burns? It would help us to inform future attendants on not what to do, cause we don't like to see our fellow convention peeps in pain.

Back in my wrestling days we used to get mat burns all the time, essentially the same thing as a rug burn. We usually just applied aloe vera to it... not aloe lotion, the real stuff. I would leave the aloe vera on for a little while before you applied any lotion though so it gets absorbed properly.

For smaller areas I would suggest Vaseline as it essentially seals the moisture into the skin and re-moisturizes it... drawback is its a little oily. Its 10x better than lotion in my opinion since it protects while it moisturizes.

How did you get these burns? and how large are they?

You might be able to get a sports wrap, apply gause or whatever you usually apply, and wrap the sports wrap around the bandages. This would hold them in place without the need for tape, and unless it get very soiled, you could reuse the sports wrap several times.

^ Oh gosh... i honestly have been using aloe vera lotion because i didn't know there was a gel. Would using the lotion be okay though?
- May i ask if you ever had a big burn, how long did it take for it to heal?

- I got it during dodge ball on Sunday while diving for a ball. I really wish now i didn't play and my parents keeps asking what's wrong with my leg since they've never seen anything like it and it's taking such a long time to heal.


Thank you sooo much NickTechyGuy and Sir Blood. You make me get my hopes back up. ^0^;
I seriously don't whine, but i didn't know any other place i could ask for help online. :oops:
Thank you!

goto just about any pharmacy and ask for Aloe Vera, they should point you in the right direction. Its either a lightly blue or a clear gel and fairly cheap as well. Its the best treatment for burns and sunburn.

I did some internet research and found that the regular and repeaded use of lotion has been known to INCREASE heal time...

Vitamin E Oil and Neosporin are known to reduce scarring

Creams with zinc help to reduce itching, Zincofax was suggested by several people

keep them as dry as possible and allow the burns to be able to breath... uncovered as much as possible.

IMPORTANT:: If you are going to school or college, I would suggest going by the school's doctor/nurse and have them look at your rug burns.

--------------

Largest mat burn I ever got was about 1 1/2 inches wide and 3 inches long. They have been known to scab over, but don't usually last longer than a week.

Overtime developed a thicker skin over my elbows and knees and stopped getting them. 15 years later my elbows are back to normal, but my knees still have that thicker scarred skin.

As you are still dealing with them I can't suggest enough to go visit your school's doctor/nurse.

^ It's a carpet burn and i heard it's normal for them to itch badly but i don't understand why it's taking so long to go back to normal.

WARNING: Frank medical discussion below. If you're grossed out, look away.




I know I took a nasty spill down the stairs out the back of the Union on Sunday of the con, and I had a HUGE scrape on my forehead (I actually had a pretty severe concussion from it - I missed two weeks of classes and almost as much work because of it).

The biggest thing to do is to keep it clean. If it's still oozing, then a band-aid or piece of sterile gauze should probably be used to cover it, especially if you're oozing blood.

You should know what to look for if it gets infected, too (although that might not be a huge problem if you're using neosporin or something) - if it keeps oozing for an extended length of time, if the discharge is opaque (Normally, it'll be clear or mostly clear), and if the rash starts getting swollen, painful (more so than it already is, I mean), or if it starts to turn red and/or purple around the rash.

If it DOES get infected, you really should see a doctor. And don't worry about it itching. Anything that's scabbing will itch like a mo-fo. D:

- I talked to my Science teacher today after making up a final. She told me if the burn is hotter then the skin beside it. It's infected... and guess what? My burn is indeed infected... D;
P.S. - Hope you fully recovered, Molly//The Mystic Pop-Tart!

- I shall be going to see a doctor or seeking now-serious help. Once again, Thanks EVERYONE!

I'm fine, it wasn't my first concussion. XD
And temperature isn't always a good indicator of infection. In fact, if a wound is hot, it usually means the body is reacting to send platlets to the area (by way of sending more blood through the bloodstream).

You should look more for physical indications of infection. Is your science teacher directly involved in anatomy and/or physiology? o.o

- My teacher is a chemistry and an anatomy teacher.
- You made it a good point. I touched my burns later this morning and evening and notice it wasn't burning like last night. So i don't know if it's infected but i still shall be seeking for more help. =D
