Thicker burns, called second-degree burns, have blisters and are painful. The skin is very red or splotchy, and it may swell a lot.

Soak the burn in cool water for 15 minutes. If the burned area is small, put cool, clean, wet cloths on the burn for a few minutes every day. Then put on an antibiotic cream, or other creams or ointments prescribed by your doctor. Cover the burn with a dry nonstick dressing  held in place with gauze or tape. Change it every day.

Maybe put vaseline or neosporin (sp)on it and then wrap it up.

Draw the heat out of the burn if it's a new burn. Hold his finger behind his ear. The heat will be pulled out and make his finger less painful.

Weird, but it works.
