Vanessa, a 26-year-old woman, comes to the pharmacy seeking something to treat a burn. She was cooking and accidentally touched her arm on a pan. The burn is pink and approximately 2.5 cm in diameter. The edges are not raised but there are blisters. The burn occurred 40 minutes ago, after which Vanessa immediately put her arm under cold water for about 20 minutes. She then came to the pharmacy for treatment options. She reports feeling pain but is otherwise well and does not have any other medical conditions or allergies to any medicines.
