The Cures in Your Kitchen
The Daily Express, (UK), 1/29/2008

You don’t have to run to the doctor for every bruise, bite or cold sore when the solution may well be in your kitchen cupboard. Here we look at the best home remedies for some common complaint…

Burns & Scalds

Immerse the burnt area in cold water for at least 20 minutes to cool the skin, stop burning and relieve pain.

Try: A dab of honey. Researchers in India found that honey was more effective than silver sulphadiazine, the effective ingredient in conventional burns treatment cream. Soak a flannel in ice-cold whole milk and apply to the burn for 10 minutes at a time.
