It may sound ridiculous but I have burned my fingers with the freezer. I had soaking wet hands and was grabbing something from the freezer, when the tops of my fingers became stuck to the top of the inside. Like a kid licking a metal pole in winter!! Even trying to rip them off was impossible.
They were attached for a good minute or two until someone brought me a wet sponge which released them. They came out looking a really weird beige colour, and were in the shape that they were frozen in. That was last night.
Now they're really sore, swollen and red. I thought they were going to blister but they haven't yet, though it looks like there is something happening deep below the surface.
What should I put on them??? Something like polysporen for burns? Something for blisters? Covered? Let them breath?
