My curling iron slipped and burned the left side of my cheek several week's ago. Not the first time this has happened when I try to curl my hair and talk on the phone at the same time. Previously the burn disappears in 2-3 weeks; this time the skin hasn't healed and the area has turned brown, lightly raised. I treated the burn with polysporin. It would take at least 4 months for me to get an appointment with a Dermatologist -- so any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you both for responding. I did this before and the skin simply healed over; my concern this time is that the burn has changed into a raised area and never healed. I will try the Cicaplast if it is available in town. I have foung the gizmo I have that emits red light (made for and endorsed by a Derm) and will try it on the spot.

I know this is an old thread and it's frowned upon to resurrect the Dead Dogs here, but manuka honey applied several times daily will heal burns with no scarring or infection. It's naturally antibiotic. Get the 18+ or higher. Tastes good too!

How did your burn heal Mari?
