Maybe tepid water wouldn't hurt like the ice or icy water apparently did when you were younger. And tepid/room temperature water would still draw heat *from* the burned skin, which is the objective. If it worked for you, then I'm glad of that. But I don't think it's necessarily what would happen, in general. Well, I'd want to know more about it before trying it out, given that pain, possible infection, and scarring are all possible consequences.
When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.
