I do not have much advise or experience regarding the burn, but I do have some for the dizziness IF it is associated with the Lexapro. One thing that was recommended to me years ago when I was on an AD to counteract the dizziness was to try OTC motion sickness meds (Dramamine). The dizziness from ADs is typically a temporary side effect but it can be troublesome. I found the Dramamine to be very effective. Just consult your doctor first.

1st degree burns do not scar. They just look like tan skin for a year or two. Second degree burns usually do not scar badly either.

I drain my patient's blisters just because I don't want them popping at any old time all over their clothes!!! When I do it in a sterile environment it's ok.

That looks so painful, Shelly. I'm sorry.

t/j, This is something I just don't understand. Years ago I was taught that you should drain blisters but for the past decade or so I've been told to leave it and when I've asked why I'm given a non answer by the doctor. It seems to me that draining it in a controlled manner with a sterile needle is better than just allowing it to rupture willy-nilly (technical term?) whenever you bang it on some dirty something or other.

end t/j

Shelly, so sorry it is still so painful. You may want to consider draining it if it is still intact and the pressure is causing the discomfort.

t/j - Yah I agree with PJ, waiting for your body to "reabsorb" the fluid is painful and really icky when it does "pop" because you bump it, or rub it.

I'm old school and believe that you can heal one heck of a lot faster if you are in normal health, drain it in clean-sterile environment, method.
The thought on leaving it intact is if it's sealed over no germs can get in, and as prevalent as MRSA is they (us) don't want you to end up with it. But a clean dressing, and good wound care is just as good. Now if you have no immune system, or one that is compromised I have to weigh it out. Risk vs Benefit
