Maybe some of our medical pros will confirm this? Or correct me?
My mother just happened to be there. She is a nurse. We put ice on it immediately but it's kinda hard to keep it on there when you're needing to turn in your box of chicken and there isn't anyone with you that can do it besides yourself. I'm keeping it clean and keeping the SSD on it (Silver Suladiazine Cream). This is a prescription cream used to treat burn victims.
