I am an idiot! I injured my shin while running the other day, so I wanted to ice it. I tied the (bare) ice pack to my shin with a tensor bandage and left it on for like 20 min. this morning I woke up with a horribly giant swollen red square on my shin! does anyone now how I can treat this or how to help it heal? and yes...I feel pretty dumb that I didn't put a cloth around the pack first :S :"(

    Oh no Ana...is it blistering or is it just a reddened area?

      Ouch! That sounds super painful. I have no clue how to heal it. I'm thinking moisturize...maybe Aloe...is that dumb?

      well its not blistering just red and tingly and hurts oh and apparently I can't spell either! the "and" in the title is supposed to be an "an". Boy I shouldn't be allowed to do anything today...I clearly am not on my A-game.

        Ouch! I'm not sure what to do but my first thought is to moisturize too.

        I changed the title for you

          Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do for an ice burn. Keep in moisturized yet dry (does that make sense?)

          I burned the crap out of my arm in a walk-in freezer. I don't remember the details, but I was just wearing a t-shirt and my hands/arms were wet. I must have just washed them. Anyway, somehow my arm touched a wire shelf and got stuck. It looked worse and felt worse than an oven burn!

            you're funny Ana...i say keep it moisturized maybe w/ some neosporin and put a loose gauze over it. That way it can still "breathe" but won't rub on anything. I hope it heals fast!
