Thought-provoking sister Kate (4) and a remedy for burns

Sister Kate lives in Ecuador. She lives a most health-orientated lifestyle and sends the most thought-provoking emails. Her latest is a natural remedy for burns. Read on...
When it comes to First Aid for burns, most of us know to put cold water on the burn to reduce the burning sensation before you do anything else. But how many of us know about the following treatment: to apply egg whites? 

Apparently, after spraying or running cold water on to the burn, if you apply egg whites to the affected area, it will help the healing process. 

The albumin solution (which if you can think about it in the panic, ought to be whisked a little), dries to form a protective layer. 

Once it has dried, you then apply another layer. And so on. And so forth.

These layers help to remove the heat from the burn, as well as heal the burn naturally and effectively. 

And how? Because apparently, egg white is a natural collagen. 

Brilliant!
