[YEA] I read on earthclinic.com about the use of tin foil for burns.
I dumped boiling water on my hand and man did it hurt! I tried the toothpaste method (NEVER AGAIN! ), then I went through about 6 sandwich bags of ice, and then I decided to try the tin foil method.
The moment I wrapped my hand in foil (shiny side out), I felt IMMEDIATE relief. My hand got warm but it wasn't uncomfortable. I couldn't believe it. Tin foil? Really?
It's amazing. I slept with it on my hand all night and by morning the pain was gone. My hand was still red, but not hurting.
I definitely recommend the tin foil method to anyone with a minor burn like mine.
