In the apartment that my husband and I lived in prior to buying our house, I remember always being annoyed by having to clean underneath the burners on the stove. Why did everything we cooked have to drip down in there? So, when we came to tour this house, I was happy to see that the stove top was the kind that is completely smooth and flat, no separate pieces to deal with.
The downfall, however, is that once you remove a pot or pan from the stove, it is difficult to tell on the black top where it is still hot. And unfortunately, my husband has been taught this lesson more than once by laying his hand down on a still-toasty burner and feeling the pain of being burnt.
The last time it happened, it was pretty bad. We were slightly clueless as to what to do, so he ended up standing with his hand under cold water while I called the emergency number for our health clinic... and, since it wasn't that drastic of an emergency, it was at least an hour later before they called back.
In the future, the first thing I will reach for (while shaking my head that my husband doesn't ever learn), will be Burn Cream MD.
Created by Dr. Diane Madfes, a dermatologist who witnessed multiple burns occur in her family's restaurant, Burn Cream MD effectively treats burns and minimizes scars caused by burns. After being extensively tested in professional kitchens for two years, this product is now backed by well-known chefs such as Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse.
How does it work? By containing only the highest quality and most effective ingredients, Burn Cream MD provides multiple components when it is needed most, the first being immediate relief. The high percentage (the highest available without a prescription) of lidocaine quickly relieves the stinging, blocks the pain and disinfects the wound all at once. Whether using this product on adults or children, in my opinion being able to stop the hurting right away is the most important.
As well as lidocaine for relief, Burn Cream MD also contains natural ingredients such as aloe vera, chamomile and vitamin E to optimize and shorten the healing time after a burn. I have at least one permanent mark on my hands from bumping against the side or rack in the oven, so being able to use a product like this in the future for more scar prevention just makes sense.
With summer quickly approaching, cookouts and grilling are on the forefront of families' minds and the number of accidents that occur in those situations is unfortunately pretty high. As well as the pump bottle, retailing for $29.99, Burn Cream MD can also be purchased in packs of 10 travel sachets for $17.99 to keep with your barbecue, camping or outdoor equipment to always be prepared with this innovative, pain-numbing cream.
In fact, thanks to the generosity of Burn Cream MD, one person will be ready for any scorching moments, because...
