Hey guys,
I am basically typing this with one hand because I severely burned 3 fingers on my right hand yesterday with some hooooooooooot MMF. I had put it in the microwave to soften and basically got distracted by a phone call. Reached in to get the MMF and it was melted and stuck to my 3 fingers. I tell you, I have 3 children..2 of them delivered with no drugs and I have never felt pain like I felt yesterday. I have enormous blisters on3 fingers but thank god the pain has subsided a bit today. I took a vicodan last night so I could get through the night.
Thanks for reading, but please no advice on handling MMF.. I've learned that lesson in a very painful way.

Oh my!!!! icon_eek.gif I can only imagine how much that hurt(s). icon_cry.gif I hope the burns heal quickly. Your fingers are going to be extra sensitive to heat for a while. icon_sad.gif

ouch.gif Poor thing! I am so sorry this happened to you! I have burned myself with just about everything imaginable in the kitchen (the molten coconut cream pie filling was the worst) but no accidents with the MMF yet- knock on wood. I will remember to be extra careful! Hope you heal soon...fingertip burns are the worst thumbsdown.gif

I'm SOOOO sorry you got burned. Burns are the abosolute worst. But when you get burned with something very sugary, marshmellow, sugar syrup, its even worse because it just sticks to you and keeps on burning.
I hope you heal quickly.

Hot marshmellow is one of the worst things to get burnt on, I remember a kid when I was in school was microwaving fluff (marshmellow creme if you aren't familar with that brand) to make fudge and it bubbled and exploded, he had severe burns and was out of school for a bit. I can't imagine the pain icon_cry.gif . I hope you heal up well.
