Default Re: Burn from hot glue gun

Speaking as a nurse & several time glue burn sufferer. The best thing is cool water, no ice directly on it though as it can make it worse. After it stops burning try to keep it loosely covered. That will help keep you from breaking the blister open. If the blister does break you should use some antibacterial cream & a bandage of some sort to keep it clean. Antibiotic cream won't do much until/unless the blister breaks.

I so feel for you. I got a glob stuck under my fingernail last week.

Hope this helps!!
