    well, got some minor burns that feel like my skin is being ripped off whenever I'm not touching something cool/cold.

    how effective, from personal experience, is burn jel? or is there something(for relief) better to use?

    Pressure and cold are the key, brother. I can't count how many times I've burnt my hands handling hot pipe, and the best fix I've found so far is a bunch of icecubes wrapped in a paper towel pressed firmly against the burnt surface, for as long as you can take it.

    Good luck- burns suck.

    WaterJel (sp??) is what we had at work. My friend had to use it on a minor burn. I was told by a nurse that the gel is the best for burns...

    drove to a few places and either I'm blind or the stores didn't have any of it. so after about 8 hours of an ice pack to be replaced with holding cold beers. one positive, I suppose, is that I burned parts of my fingerprints off. :haha:

    I agree, it is by far the best stuff I have ever used.
