Yesterday my dad fell on the oven door - the oven had been heated to 375 to bake a pizza.
He skinned the underside of his forearm from wrist to elbow in a strip about 1" wide.
Why am I thankful? Because he didn't get burned. The damage is bad enough due to the location of the boo-boo; he leans on his arm all the time and the bleeding continues. But I have learned how to bandage this type scrape using "petroleum gauze" and home health-care is coming tomorrow and might give additional insight of what to do.
Also, we have a fantastic local health clinic that will take him on a walk-in basis anytime.
Your prayers are most welcome for the bleeding to stop. He is on plavix and low-dose aspirin due to heart problems.
