    Honey works better than triple antibiotic ointment.
    Back in the day (1988) the Corpsmen used Preparation-H on my no skin road rash. I only lost some color from my tattoos. Barely any scarring.

    In 1975 after I got back from the USAF I went to work with my BIL in Chicago doing flat roofs. On one job he was carrying two 5gal buckets of hot tar and went thru the roof with one foot/leg. The hot tar spilled and went down the hole, down his leg and into his boot. He spent 14 days in the hospital getting skin grafts. Tar, lead, resin anything that is going to cling and solidify.

    Only thing that scares me more than burning is drowning, trapped under water.

    As someone else said, this is no time to be going near any hospital or urgent care.

    Double check but I think you want to clean with peroxide every other day. Something about the peroxide eating too much new skin or going to deep into the damaged area. I know on the cows its every other day.

    The triple antibiotic ointment is good stuff.

    Maybe a zinc cream.

    Glad your doing okay

    See some already addressed the peroxide, good people here.

    Aloe works the best.
    Honey will also work, but you have to keep the bugs off of it.

    OK, I'll lay off the peroxide. At this point I think just letting the air hit it is probably the best thing.
    Root rot = too much watering ...treat it like a cactus , a little water every two weeks , let the soil dry out completely before watering , it doesn't require much looking after . Sorta thrives on being ignored . Not only good for burns but any cut , scrape or crack in the skin...it moisturizes too .
    We grow it in well drained containers because the heat , humidity and rain in Louisiana tends to drown it if planted in the ground.
    We do have a raised bed that is dry and the stuff grows like gangbusters , a hard freeze kills some leaves but new growth comes back in spring .

    Excuse the rambling post ...cabin fever has got me .

    Honey is a good antibiotic ...but sticky , that's my only complaint when using honey .
