Re: [RC] [RC] [RC] [RC] Burn Injury from Hot Ash - Maryanne Gabbani

Back when I was still a functioning MOM and had kids around who occasionally got burns we discovered that Bach's Rescue Remedy cream was one of the few things that could actually take the pain out of a burned area. It became known as Magic Cream in our house and I always keep it on hand. Hard to find something as neutral as this cream that does so well. FWIW.

Update on the mare:  Once we realized it was indeed a burn I had taken a rubber curry and scrubbed on the biggest burned area pretty good just to get it opened up knowing I had cleaned it really good.  That was on Sunday.  Sunday evening she was swollen and throughout Monday she was not a happy girl.  I've been gently cleaning the area twice a day since and applying fresh neosporin each time.  Since Tuesday there is very little heat in the area and her swelling has gone down and she's not as sore anymore either.

Thank you everyone for your replies and I will research some of the burn treatments recommended so I have the product on hand next time.

It appears it is not more than a 2nd degree burn with a diameter not more
than softball size.  Think of hot gravel and that's what it looks like 

If it's warm and seeming to hurt more, I would have a vet look at it. There could be debris or infection under the visibly damaged skin, and it might need to be debrided. If it is infected and not treated (burns often require systemic antibiotics) it could definitely affect more of the leg/hoof/horse.
