That's weird. I would have thought that the vinegar in the mustard would sting that raw skin.
I'm a cook and burn myself a lot
. Just last week I managed to steam the softest part of the inside of my wrist while I was cleaning our flat
top at the end of the night.
All I've done for it was keep it wrapped and moisturized ( I used Udder Cream but in a pinch I'd use almost any food
grade oil), while at work. Then I let it dry out a little at home before bed and wrap it up again before sleeping.
Keeping it moist helps to avoid the raw and new skin from getting stiff and cracking...and helps when you need to debride the skin that needs to come
I might try the mustard thing...but the idea of putting vinegar on anything but an acid burn is scary!
