Put some milk in a big dish filled with ice, then soak a towel in it and pad the skin – do not rub the skin with the towel! Leave the towel for 5 minutes or more on the damaged spot. The milk will calm the skin, while the ice and cold will cause the blood vessels to shrink and help with the redness and swelling!
