My finger got fried

I was careless while preparing dinner today that I got hot oil splashed on my finger and got it scalded.

It was so painful but dinner had to be served and so I continued cooking with water running down my hand or a cold pack wrapped around my finger. 

As a result, the kitchen was in a mess, since I can only cook with one hand. But dinner was good. I made fried rice rice with luncheon meat. 

It then took me 3 hours to dull the pain. I was adviced to use apple cider vinegar and aloe vera and a few other things which I do not have, but in the end, only cold water worked. 

It doesn't look too bad but it's about 2cm long with a big blob of blister in the middle of it. 

I read that it will take 3 weeks for it to heal. Apparently I do not need any bandage if the blister is not broken but it will be a challenge not to irritate it.

This is what happens when I am not careful.

And this when my friend suffered the same fate with boiling hot water yesterday.

Tsk tsk tsk...yeah, how careless.
