  • Solarcaine (sp?) this is AWESOME for the sting. Also, noxema..........use that in the shower, it will pull out the sting. It hurts, but once it's done you'll feel better.

  • Aloe vera and vinegar. I know the vinegar sounds weird but it takes the sting out.

  • Depends on how bad it is. And if there are open blisters. I was burned badly, and went to the doc. I was given silvadyn cream and tylenol 3. If it's not that bad, solarcaine, aloe, a really good moisterizer.

  • Tea bags, regular black tea bags soaked in cold water then placed on the burn work wonders.

  • Get the alo vera gel from walmart and put it in the refrigerator it makes it feel alot better when you put it on it takes the hot feeling out of the burn.
