There has been reports going around that if you have a burn, you should beat up an egg white and apply it as fast as possible. This is NOT the case at all. I've also heard of using tomato sauce, potato slices, yogurt, cool mud and other things that are also of no use. Egg whites can actually have a detrimental effect in the form of potential infections and complications from that. Please be careful when these type of emails start coming around!
