  • aloe vera gel, and most stores start to sell the plant in the next month or so, i have one and you just break off a piece of it and use the gel from the plant and it grows it back. i like that better for me b/c i think it works faster so thats what i use for my daughter if she gets a slight burn

  • if you can find it...solarcaine......aloe like previous moms said....n a small bath of baking soda.....baby powder works wonders after bath...i know from personal experience if that lotion has no aloe or shea butter or its not thick cocoa butter...will irritate the burn n possible make it blister....hopefully one of these will help

  • Pure aloe jelly is best, either from a plant or a tube
