Burned by steam

I decided to get rid of some stains in the bathroom by using steam. I started the steamer and got to work. After a while the steam ran out and I thought the steam machine had run out of water. Tested it another time and then opened it and got really badly burned on the inside of my left hand, my fingers and even parts of the back of my hand. I immediately put my hand under running cold water and started doing Fast Aid. The next day I was going to teach an Access class and just the thought of using my badly burned hand tapping the whole day hurt. I didn´t have to worry because after about 15 minutes the hand didn´t hurt that bad anymore. After another 5 it almost didn´t hurt at all. The next day I only had a light shade of pink between two of my fingers and two days later the outer layer of skin peeled of as if I had had sunburn.
