I actually work as an RN on the Burns/ICU unit so here's my advice since I deal with burns every single day!


First breathe!! You still have 13 days until your wedding right? From looking at your pictures and the amount it healed from day 1 to day 3 it appears to be a first degree burn. Painful and annoying yes, but it heals. We use polysporin on our burns (from fingers to an entire body depending on the burn thickness). The reasoning behind the poly is due to the antibacterial property it has. Infection is a burn nightmare. Keep putting the poly on, and it should heal. For your wedding day if you are concerned about the appearance use a little bit of makeup. However, I think by the wedding it will look 10 times better! Unfortunately, it just takes some time and there's no magic cure for a burn. Keep using the polysporin! Oh and I see you're from Edmonton! You can buy polysporin from the outpatient clinic attached to the burn unit at cost. It's cheaper than the stores. But bring cash, cause that's all we take!


Big hugs!!!  grouphug.gif

What a bummer! I think your hand looks much better in 3 days. I bet by the time you go it will feel and look lots better. In reality your hands don't show a lot unless it is a close up of your ring.  Most of the time in photos you will be holding  a bouquet which will cover it up.  I understand why you are bummed, but I think you will still have a stellar day and awesome pictures!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
