First Aid: Egg Whites

My mother-in-law forwarded me an email she received:

“A young man sprinkling his lawn and bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the barrel to see how much pesticide remained in it. He raised the cover and lit his lighter; the vapors inflamed and engulfed him. He jumped from his truck, screaming. His neighbor came out of her house with a dozen eggs, yelling: “bring me some eggs!” She broke them, separating the whites from the yolks. The neighbor woman helped her to apply the whites on the young man’s face. When the ambulance arrived and when the EMTs saw the young man, they asked who had done this. Everyone pointed to the lady in charge. They congratulated her and said: “You have saved his face.” By the end of the summer, the young man brought the lady a bouquet of roses to thank her. His face was like a baby’s skin.

“Not only good for health, egg whites also help you have a beautiful white skin, smooth. Use egg whites up to the face until it forms a layer clinging to the skin stretch and then rinse with warm water. This method prevents the problem of aging such as aging skin, loss of elasticity or wrinkles. Using regular mask, your skin will become more radiant.”

Keep in mind this treatment of burns which is included in teaching beginner fireman this method. First aid consists to spraying cold water on the affected area until the heat is reduced and stops burning the layers of skin. Then, spread egg whites on the affected are.

One woman burned a large part of her hand with boiling water. In spite of the pain, she ran cold faucet water on her hand, separated 2 egg white from the yolks, beat them slightly and dipped her hand in the solution. The whites then dried and formed a protective layer.

She later learned that the egg white is a natural collagen and continued during at least one hour to apply layer upon layer of beaten egg white. By afternoon she no longer felt any pain and the next day there was hardly a trace of the burn. 10 days later, no trace was left at all and her skin had regained its normal color. The burned area was totally regenerated thanks to the collagen in the egg whites, a placenta full of vitamins.”

Scientists aren’t quite sure why egg whites are the “cure de jour” for burns, but there is no doubt that they can work miracles for your skin. Simply apply a layer on your hand and then make sure you wrap it to keep it moist. Check it in an hour or possibly two and, chances are, there will be so scalding or scarring on the burned area. As for the pain, you probably want to stick with some painkillers, but nothing helps remove any signs of burns better than egg whites. Source
