How to Put Foil on Burns

    • 1). Place the burned area under cool running water for several minutes.

    • 2). Pat the area dry with a clean towel if the skin is not broken. If the skin is open, gently pat with sterile gauze to absorb the water. Then cover the area with a dry sterile piece of gauze.

    • 3). Place a piece of aluminum foil over the skin or gauze. Hold in place to absorb heat until the pain subsides. Secure the gauze over the wound with paper tape. If the skin is broken, apply a thin layer of antibiotic ointment to the burn before you apply the gauze to prevent it from sticking to the wound.
