Potatoes can make a painful problem a serious problem and there simply is no reason to use them, honestly it don't work. Ice will cool the burn and relieve the pain better than potatoes and if you decide not to see a doctor then use the ice as it will bring some relief, obviously you will not get an infection in the burned eyes every time with potatoes but once is all it takes! The usual story is that "I heard about it from an old time welder who has done it for years" but whenever someone told me that, and I have heard it a bunch of times, I always ask "If you do get an infection will you go to that old welder for help or would you go to the doctor who would warn you not to do this?
