All you need to do is to leave the wrap in place overnight. You should repeat this for 10-12 successive days and after that, give your body a break of two weeks. If the pain is persistent you can repeat this method (along with the breaks) until it disappears.
3. Alleviate Fresh Burns
Very few people know that the elements in aluminum foil can soothe burns much better than many different methods. Interestingly, the University of Wisconsin advises their trauma doctors to dress fresh the burns with aluminum foil. So, to heal burn wounds, you should wash the burn with cold water and dry it with a soft cloth. The next step is to apply a thin layer of burn ointment, followed by sterile gauze. Finally, you should wrap the gauze with aluminum foil and secure it with a medical bandage. You should keep the wrap in place until you notice that the pain is leaving the area.
