    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    It's been suggested that we leave a space between the start of a post and the triggering part.

    Write something innocuous in the first line. then leave some spaces between in and the subject matter. this should take care of accidentally triggering someone.

    Do you know how to treat burn? ie you have the knowledge to treat it properly? if not then an visit to the ER is in order.

    In the mean time, do not ice it or put any cream on it, and do not break the blister that will form.

    Any burn wider than 1 inch or longer than 3 inches or encircles a limb should be seen by an medical professional.

    Yes. Go to the hospital and have your wounds professionally cleaned and bandaged.
