Treating Burns With Flour Has Miraculous Results- Fiction!

Treating Burns With Flour Has Miraculous Results- Fiction!

Summary of eRumor:

A forwarded email about someone who was treated for a burn by a Viet Nam Veteran using ordinary flour.  The results were so good that it suggests keeping a bag of flour in the refrigerator and using it instead of water for treating burns.
 

The Truth:

TruthOrFiction.com has found no evidence of this being true or that flour could be an acceptable treatment for burns when conventional methods are not available.

It could be a coincidence that this eRumor began circulating around April 1, 2011.
