Re: OT -- A GUITARISTS SECOND WORST NIGHTMARE
Ice immediately to cool the remaining heat and reduce swelling, but
not "bare" ice on the skin for too long, the ice can damage tissue as
well. Try wrapping the ice in a cotton towel...
Keep it cold for pain relief into this evening, but beyond that no
good advice, it sounds like at minimum you've got a 1st degree burn
with areas of 2nd degree (the brown areas).
It might be worth a trip to an ER or at least to call an advice
nurse, the finger tips are pretty important and your description is
troubling, the blisters aren't bad, but the brown "ironing board"
stuff sounds not so good.
