After removing the source of the burn, immerse the burn in cool water or apply a cool compress for 10-15 minutes. Never apply ointments, butter or grease to a burn as this can lead to infection. Do not apply ice directly to a burn as it can cause additional destruction to the already delicate skin involved. Avoid breaking any blisters if they form. Once cooling has been completed, dry the area involved and cover the burn with a clean cloth, sterile gauze or non-adhesive bandage. Over the counter pain medications such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen are safe to use to help with discomfort. Once the initial burn discomfort has subsided, you can apply 100% pure aloe gel.
