Home Health Remedies You Should Never Try
Travis Stork: But there are also some remedies that you should never do at home and that is what we are talking about on today’s Health Hearsay. Today’s Health Hearsay question is “Should I put butter on a burn?” And before Liz and I give you the answer, by applause in the audience, who thinks you should put butter on a burn? Clap your hands. So, who thinks you shouldn’t by applause? So, it is out there. Is it smart?
Liz Vaccariello: It is not a good idea. Think about it, you don’t try to put out a fire with butter, do you?
Travis Stork: No.
Liz Vaccariello: What butter can do is it actually traps the heat against your skin which can make the discomfort worse and could potentially cause infection.
Travis Stork: So, stick to butter on your bread. Cool the burn under cool water, cool compress, antibiotic ointments.
Liz Vaccariello: With a cool compress, cold water as long as you want. Yup.
Travis Stork: And then if you have severe burns, you do need to go to the hospital.
Our next Health Hearsay question is “Should you starve a fever?” This comes from the Starve a Fever, Feed a Cold. I grew up hearing that from everyone around me.
Liz Vaccariello: You should not starve a fever. In fact, you should do the opposite. What you should do is drown a fever. When the body is having a fever, it’s fighting infection. Your metabolism is revved. It needs more energy to fight what’s going on in the body. So, if you’re hungry, you should eat and you should have plenty of fluids.
Travis Stork: And so, do not starve a fever. What you really want to do is plenty of fluids and if you eat, most important thing, fruits and vegetables give your immune system the opportunity it needs to fight off the infection.
A great Health Hearsay advice, thank you so much Liz.
