Burned hand
Hello,
On Friday night boiling hot water was accidentally poured over the back (not the palm) of my left hand.  It is painful & is extremely itchy.  It is also starting to blister up.  Should I seek medical attention?  Please advise on what I can do to speed up the recovery.
Thank you

Yes.  Please seek medical attention.  A burned hand is a reason to not only see a doctor but a burn specialist.  Abnormal healing or scars on the hand can cause problems with function of the hand in the future.
