Some Deep Heat burnt my hand last Monday. They were second degree burns but not bad ones. (Picture on profile). I had it bandaged up until Friday then left open as had dried up, wasn't sore anymore just tender and sensitive. Over the weekend it started weeping in areas again, not infection just weepy and wet. Went back to see the nurse again today and bandaged up again and got to go back on Friday. She said I'd been using my hand too much! How can you use it too much and I've got a 15 month old to look after.

So how long do they usually take to heal as its a pain in the bum having it bandaged.
