What are shin splints treatments?

In most cases, you can treat shin splints with simple self-care steps:

Rest. Avoid activities that cause pain, swelling or discomfort — but don't give up all physical activity. While you're healing, try low-impact exercises, such as swimming, bicycling or water running.
Ice the affected area. Apply ice packs to the affected shin for 15 to 20 minutes at a time, four to eight times a day for several days. To protect your skin, wrap the ice packs in a thin towel.
Take an over-the-counter pain reliever. Try ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others), naproxen sodium (Aleve) or acetaminophen (Tylenol, others) to reduce pain.
Resume your usual activities gradually. If your shin isn't completely healed, returning to your usual activities may cause continued pain.

What is good first aid advice for burns? I never know whether you should put cold water or burns or not.

it's good that you're asking as some basic sensible first aid advice can make a difference to how burns heal.

Before you treat burns you need to figure out the severity; whether they are first, second or third degree burns. This will depend on the extent of the tissue damage.

First degree burns are superficial and don't blister. The burn may be red and swollen. Run the affected area under cool water and you can put some silver sulphadiazine on it to help the healing.

Second degree burns may turn white on touch and blisters may develop. The burns extend to the middle skin layer. To treat; gently clean and dry the area. Apply antibiotic cream and seek medical treatment immediately.

Third degree burns damage all 3 skin layers and can be very dangerous and even life threatening if they affect over 90% of the body. Treatment involves immediate medical care, fluids will be needed to deal with dehydration and possibly oxygen.

Can you see out of your eye immediately after corrective laser surgery? I have heard very mixed answers and dont want to get into a panic if I cant see.

For the first 8 to 10 hours you won't be able to see well out of the treated eye. Things will appear blurry and cloudy, but don't panic, this is completely normal as the eye needs time to heal.

How should I treat a razor burn?

To treat razor burns, look for a soothing after-shave balm. Avoid alcohol-based aftershaves. You may also want to avoid shaving for a few days in order to let the skin heal itself.

My 25yr old son has a corneal ulcer which won't heal fully and keeps re-occurring after antibiotic drops. The ulcer has been treated for almost 4 months but as soon as he discontinues the drops it flares...

It may be necessary to use a compounding pharmacy to use a anti-bacterial that will treat the ulcer. If he has been to a specialist I assume that the ulcer has been cultured and tested for susceptibility. If the proper antibiotics are being administered then a typical corneal ulcer should heal.
If the ulcer has been cultured and treated accordingly then there are other factors that are causing the ulcer. There is a possibility of the problem being caused by the Herpes Simplex virus or Ocular Cicatrical Pemphagoid.
Have your son see a corneal specialist, if that isn't one of the specialists he has seen. To give you a better answer I would need a fuller picture of the previous diagnosis's, cause of the ulcer and treatments that have been attempted already. Good luck with your son. I hope this helps.
