NAME_OF_REMEDY: Burns and Fevers
INGREDIENTS: egg whites
I know of an exceptionally effective natural remedy for healing burns and lowering a fever: egg whites.

Egg whites are by far the best method to lower a high temperature within MINUTES! When I was about 4 or 5 years old, I had acquired a fever so high that I startedto hallucinate. My mother was in a panic, she feared brain damage if something didn't lower the fever and FAST. My grandma told her to soak 2 cloths or hankerchiefs in egg whites and put on the soles of the feet (cover with socks). The egg whites instantaneously start to draw the temperature DOWN from the brain (where it is dangerous) to the feet (where it can do no damage). After that incident my mom used this method successfully every time I had high temp. The egg whites are also a miracle cure for burns, even severe ones. Soak or coat affected area in egg white. While the egg white is still wet you will feel no pain from the burn. As soon as it dries up the pain comes back so reapplication is necessary. This method not only aleviates the pain it actually heals and prevents scarring from the burn.I would like to let more people know about the miraculous effectiveness of treating fevers and burns with egg whites so please post this on your site if you deem fit.

INGREDIENTS: Sodium Bicarbonate, also known as baking soda, or
bicarbonate of soda. You can buy it at your local supermarket.

INSTRUCTIONS: For minor burns (ie from picking up a hot frypan, touching a very hot surface, steam, flame, sunburn). For a small burn, mix one or two teaspoons of sodium bicarbonate with a very small amount of water, just enough to make it into a smooth paste (not runny). Put the paste directly onto to burned area and leave it for some minutes. It will quickly make the pain subside. When it begins to dry out and fall off, replace it with fresh wet paste. Do this for at least 5 -
10 minutes or more, as required.It not only stops the pain but also promotes apid healing without scarring. It can also be used to relieve and reduce swelling in the case of insect bites, in conjunction with anti-histamine tablets. This is a time-honoured Australian remedy, and in my personal experience works far better than any burn cream or ointment on the market. I do not know if it can be used for serious (third-degree) burns. These should be referred to a hospital or medical practicioner for treatment.

Just cut the tomato into wedges use one slice and rub over the burned area. The acid from the tomato takes the pain away and the burn WILL NOT blister.

Ingredients: Nail-Varnish :use only Cellulose base Polylemere with non
methanol base solvant.
Instructions: Important Remedy against all BurnsIn this statement, I suggest to verifying this effective remedy against skin burns made by fire or iron. It is enough to spread a coat of Nail-Varnish on the burn. Once dry, the film is going to prevent infections and stops immediately pain. Before to test it, it is necessary to make a toxicological search on the elements which compose the varnish, because these elements can pass in the blood.

For years if I got a burn, the old butter standby, or ice.  But after visiting a hospital in Pittsburgh, a doctor told me to put colgate toothPASTE on the burn.
It can not be the jell type.  It must be paste.  You won't believe how this works!!  It provides instant relief to the burn area also.  But don't risk anything if the burn is severe enough seek medical attention, but for smaller burns, *(yes even sunburn) use colgate toothpaste

This will work on any type of burn. I know people say run cool water over a burn or put ice on it . No, that doesn't work as well. I was told by my mother -in - law when you burn yourself whether it is from the stove, steam, or hot iron, if possible soak it in cold milk right away. If you can't soak it in milk, dip a cloth in cold milk and place it on the burn immediately. The milk takes the sting out. Next rub some pure vitamin E on the burn to help it heal faster without as much scarring.

This is my favorite home remedy for burns. First, soak the burn in cold water or alcohol and put slices of potato on it, because the potato absorbs the heat and makes the blister go down. It doesn't like the sun. If you get sun you will get a scar. Also : take medicine - maybe burn medicine.......

Not everyone Κcan use this remedy but it works for minor burns, scrapes, cold sores, and pimples. IT"S BREASTMILK !! As a nursing mother of three children, I know this to be true and it should since mother'sΚ milk is loaded with antibodies whichΚare natural healers.ΚΚIfΚ a nursing woman has sore and cracked nipples, she is usually told to smooth some breastmilk on them after each feeding and the healing properties will allow them to heal faster. This is also true for skin in general and it's nice to know that it is gentle and can be taken with you anywhere you go.ΚΚΚ
