    I did this at work with an iron, I wasn't sewing, but ironing wood. Seems funny, but you can spray water on little dents and iron them right out. So, I was ironing a door and dropped the iron right on my arm....I was thinking it was going to hurt so bad. Surprisingly, it doesn't hurt at all, but is all blistered up. I hope it heals up quickly.

    Drizzle some aloe vera on it and when you go to work cover it with a loose gauze pad to keep it clean. There is nothing like an inflamed burn.

    You must have a high tolerance for pain cause surely that hurts! Go with the aloe vera just to make me feel better.

    I burned muself with aan iron. I used vitamin E oil and aloe on the burn, it healed an left no scar. I just punched a hole with a straight p[in in the vitamin E capsule and squeezed the oil on burn.

    Ouchy Ouchy. I hope it heals fast for you. Looks like its going to leave a scar. Aloe Vera is good for burns. Make sure to keep it clean. I'm glad its not your hands or that would cause you not to be able to sew. That would have been bad!!!

    I never heard of that before, but honey is wonderful. It is full of all the good stuff. I have never had a bad burn so I have just been keeping ointment on it and keeping it covered so it doesn't dry out.

    It should hurt and it probably will soon! If a bad burn doesn't hurt, that usually isn't a good thing. It means it has burned through all layers and deadened the nerves. Hope it heals up well for you.

    That isn't good. :( It really doesn't hurt at all. It did for a couple minutes after it happened and then it stopped. And it happened so quick, guess that iron was REALLY hot.

    Ouch! :shock: You say it doesn't hurt, but it sure looks like it does! If you have any Royal Jelly, that will help with healing.

    Ouch! That looks like it hurt! That could get infected very easily. It may start hurting again when the blister breaks. I believe that is a second degree burn. It can take up to 48 hours to see the full extent of the burn, and this can get infected very easily. It may be a good idea to give your doc a call and check to see if he would recommend putting antibiotic ointment on it. Some docs will give you a prescription for silvadene creme which may help with potential scarring. So sorry you got burned so nastily.

    ouch...that looks awful..use aloe on it

    last week I was pressing a quilt w/ steam and suddenly My iron started leaking boiling hot water..I have problems with my legs so I was sitting and my legs were under the ironing board...my thighs and a little of my belly got burned and at first it stung bad...I keep a bottle of 100% aloe gel in the refrigerator (keeping it cold just feels good on the burns) for whenever anyone gets burned a bottle costs about $7-8 but will last a long long time in the fridge.... I put the aloe gel on it right away...no blistering nothing it just got red and the next day it was almost gone I used aloe on it several times the first two days and it is gone and never did hurt after that....

    Hope it heals up fast

    I hope you reported it, just incase it becomes infected or worse so your medical bills will be covered. Ice water and ice I have found is the best thing to help it! One time making Thanksgiving dinner, I removed a pot from the oven, it was 400 degrees, went about setting the table, grabbed the handle of that pot about a few seconds later and dropped it to the floor. I soaked my hand in ice cold water overnight, it did not blister, I did lose a bit of skin but that was it. I was thank ful! Here is to a speedy recovery!
