They didn't look bad for the first week or so, but eventually bubbled up. It was pretty painful as it was, and I was stupid and didn't go to the doctors and instead tried every remedy I could think of. Solercaine was probably the worst idea, it burns and makes you nearly punch the person putting it on you. Anyways, on top of the burn, I closed a very hot tortilla press on top of my burns, and in the same day, smashed it on the edge of a wall at work, ripping my burned skin open. It was nasty and infected and had some nasty watery stuff coming out for awhile. Oh, and I could slide the skin on the entire top of my hand around into weird wrinkly positions because of the watery crap under it. It took over 2 months to heal."
