Tap Water

New research suggests warm water might better than cold when it comes to treating minor burns.

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports in today's "Housecall for Health":

New research aims to change the way people think about treating burns. Running cold tap water over minor burns is generally accepted as the best way to cool skin and prevent blistering.

But a study from lead researchers in Switzerland says using warm water is more effective.

The research team recommends using cold water on scalds for about a minute before switching to warm.
