depends:

for a scald/steam burn, I just put ice packs on it then aloe vera

for a burn that blisters I treat with ice until the pain stops, then dress with antibiotic ointment and a bandage

For minor burn, rinse under cold water, apply burn ointment, wrap & continue cooking.  For steam burns that irrate the eyes, apply cold damp cloth over eyes & in minor cases apply liquid tears.  For anything not covered in the first aid kit, time to go to the ER.

For mild burns I pour a small amount bleach on it (old chefs trick).  Takes the pain away immediately.  Pour some bleach in the cap and then pour the cap on your burn.

I always keep an aloe vera plant in the kitchen for minor burns.

I use emu oil for all burns.

Rinse in cold running water, then apply done ordinary mustard to it. The bungee in it stops the burn while the mustard keeps it in place.

I rinse it with cold water and then use aloe. I prefer to use fresh from the plant but I do have some in a bottle. I also have some spray stuff from when my son burnt his foot with oatmeal.
