Q. Soy sauce for burns really works! I was changing the air cleaner in my car and my metal watchband accidentally arced across a battery terminal.
I got a severe burn in the shape of my watchband at the point of contact. I remembered the recommendation of soy sauce for burns. I slowly poured it on the burn for about a minute and had no pain then or afterward. I went back and finished my project.
A. We always suggest putting cold water on a burn first. Soy sauce thereafter can help ease the pain from a burn, as you discovered. Anyone who is interested in more details about this home remedy and others will find them at www.peoplespharmacy.com. Severe burns require immediate medical attention.
