Location of the injury
What kind of injury is it
Burn off oil from a deep fat fryer
I was getting a bowl of chips out of the fryer (temperature approx 160 degrees celsius) wasn't concentrating and missed the bowl, splashing oil all over my forearm.
I had to keep my arm in a bowl of cold water for over 15 hours because of the pain, the following day I ended up going to hospital and was told I should have immediately.
The nurse popped the blisters with a needle and then properly dressed the burns.
What I'd Do Differently
- Pay more attention to what im doing whilst dealing with oil that hot.
- Go to hospital immediately to get it covered, making it less likely to get infected.
