How to Treat a minor burn

First degree burn - This is the least severe burn and only involves the outer layer of skin (the epidermis). The skin will often be somewhat red and painful. Sunburns are usually first degree burns. Simple apply a layer of Shuttle Lotion On the burn and the pain will go away instantly and the burn will be healed in 6 to 8 on average but can take up to 24 hours (Do NOT cover with a bandage!!! You want this wound to be exposed to the air)

Second degree burn - Second degree burns occur when the epidermis has been burned through and the second layer of skin (the dermis) has also been burned. These are much more painful than first degree burns and are usually accompanied swelling and blisters.

Third degree burn - The most severe type of burns, third degree burns occur when the all layers of the skin are burned through and the burn has reached the underlying tissue. Because the nerves have been destroyed, third degree burns are painless; skin will be dry and leathery, and frequently black, white or brown in color.

Second degree burns covering a larger area, third degree burns and any significant burns on the face, hands, feet, groin should be treated as major burns. With all major burns, seek medical help as soon as possible. Follow the steps below to care for these burns until you can get the injured person into the care of a doctor.

1.Call for emergency services immediately.

2.Do not remove any embedded charred clothing or material. Removing clothing from burned areas is likely to cause bleeding. However, if not stuck to the burn, you should remove jewelry and unburned clothing if may constrict the burned area.

3.Apply cool, wet compresses to the burned area for a very brief period of time. This will reduce body temperature somewhat. However, do not use ice or immerse the affected area in cold water for extended periods of time.

4. Be prepared to treat the burn victim for shock. Look for shock symptoms: weak, rapid pulse, clammy skin, disorientation or unconsciousness, nausea, combativeness.

5. Cover the burned area with cool, moist, sterile bandages.

6. If possible, elevate the burn above the heart. This procedure will assist in reducing the likelihood or severity of shock.

7. Stay with the victim until help arrives.

Top 5 Tips to Control Acne and Rosacea

Though Acne and Rosacea differ in minor ways, their underlying causes are much the same. Oil, dirt, and bacteria top the list of causes for outbreaks of blemishes, redness, and inflammation.

Acne Rosacea is also known as Papulopustular Rosacea and is not a type of acne and hereditary in nature. It is caused by dilation of the weak blood vessels in the face, making the complexion flush and red. Acne, on the other hand, is either hereditary or due to fungal infections that lead to pimples, clogged pores and whiteheads.

There are some basic techniques and skin products to help with both. Here are five tips that will help you keep your complexion toned, smooth, and blemish-free.

Tip 1 – Keep it Clean

Acne and rosacea both thrive on oil and dirt. Excess oil, produced by the skin’s sebaceous glands, can clog pore and increase the risk of inflammation – leading to pimples, whiteheads, and redness. Clogged pores and interaction with microscopic yeast creates bacteria and fungal infection.

Daily use of an Acne Face Wash and a microderm abrasion cream can deep-clean pores and wash away accumulated worn cells. Most use Zinc PCA that regulates oil, and products with Emu Oil or Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) kill bacteria and fungus.

Tip 2 – Watch the Heat

Control outbreaks by avoiding extreme temperature changes, heat and high humidity. The drying effects of temperate change inflame sensitive tissue. And, high heat and humidity increase oil production. Protect yourself from direct sunlight by using a light free sunscreen on your face. Avoid hot showers whenever possible. Though steam has been known to open pores, high heat can increase irritation on an already blemished complexion.

Tip 3 – Watch what you Eat

Though it’s still a source of debate, what you eat can affect your complexion. Spicy food, coffee, alcohol, and chocolate are considered the main culprits. Each can have an effect on your body’s chemical makeup, and many of us have minor to severe reactions. Unfortunately, our complexion is often the first to show symptoms – redness, rash, or blemishes.

Tip 4 – Hands Off

Referring to Tip 1, dirt, bacteria, and oil are leading causes of non-heredity acne and rosacea. Popping, squeezing, and scratching are a no-no. Granted this is a big request for children or teenagers (my son included), your hands transmit a host of fungus, dirt and grime. Keep your hands off and maintain a vigilant regimen of cleansing. An Acne Face Toner (similar to Stridex®), Face Wash, and diligent use of a gentle microdermabrasion cream will fight bacteria and clean oil and dirt. Avoiding contact with your hands just make progress that much easier and faster.

Tip 5 – Diagnosis for Severe Acne & Rosacea

Despite your best efforts, sometimes you might need to pull-out the big gun – go see the Dermatologist (preferably an Acne Specialist). It is essential to identify the conditions prior to prescribing the correct treatments. Antibiotics, topical or oral steroids, or medicated skin care may be prescribed. Keep in mind, however, that despite much of the commercial hype, there are acne products that work. Diligent and consistent application can bring blemish-free results in as little as days or weeks. Just keep at it.

Shuttle around the world

Since 1955 my sister and now her daughters have mailed us shuttle from Miami, to places all over the world. With a husband in the military it was impossible to find Shuttle anywhere else. AND we couldn't be without it. You know bugs are everywhere. We have carred Shuttle Creme and later Shuttle spray from Oklahoma, Georgia, North Carolina, West Germany, Italy, France, Monoco, Hawaii, Canada, Vietnam, Mexico and finally Texas. We just could not have lived without having it to soothe the bites and burns which our six children had. Now we are using it on our Grandchildren and Greatgrandchild. God Bless the folks who invented it, packaged it and had it for sale.
No one can go wrong buying Grenald's Shuttle and you really don't even need the money back guarantee that you offer. Thanks so much for your Product.
