Tiny little burn on thumb turns into this...

So, I was pulling a hot pan from oven on Thursday night. Got a small burn, no big deal at all. Totally forgot about it. Went to work on Friday and Saturday. Sunday morning woke up and it was red and about the size of a quarter. Burning and itching, but I put some medication on it. Went to bed and on Monday morning it was a big bigger and redder, painful, but I just went ahead and cleaned it up, put on meds and went on with my day. Tuesday morning had to go to work it was now about the size of a 50 cent piece, red, blistered looking and painful.
Went to work and during the day watched as the 50 cent piece got bigger and the edges of the circle starting moving down my hand onto my wrist and across my hand. Decided to go to Insta care and they sent me to emergency room. Seems I now have a massive infection, with celluitis... IV antibiotics, oral antibiotics (3000 mg a day for ten days) and have to watch it closely to see if the redness keeps growing or starts going away.
Have to go to work today, so its wrapped, gloved and painful. What a mess, all from a simple tiny burn.

Ouch!! I feel for you, I once burned my palm on a muffler that got infected ( long story).

I found this stuff that qas AMAZING on burns. I think it's called 2nd skin. It's a jelly like pad you put over the burn. It keeps it moist & keeps the antibiotics on the burn
