I burnt myself and it hurts

So I thought it'd be a good idea to catch some wax on fire and then pour it on my finger while it was still on fire.
I guess I was wrong.
If feels a little better now but man it hurt last night. I now have a mild 2nd degree burn on my index finger that still has wax in it because it hurts too much to peel the wax off the burn. I hope that won't cause any problems.

Ouch, that looks painful! When I was younger I did an equally silly thing, spraying deodorant into a can and then lighting it with a lighter. That sort of obliterated the whole side of my thumb for about a month. Wasn't nice.

Maybe you should try heating your finger slightly to loosen the wax that's embedded? (Like, with warm water, not a lighter).

Heh heh. Funny stuff. Maybe shouldn't use so much wax next time.

Ouch, burning wax does hurt. I've found that alcohol gel sanitizer is better for lighting body parts. It doesn't get as hot or make as much of a mess as wax. (mess, as in burned skin, blisters, residue, etc.)
