So I was cooking soup on the stove, and I accidentally touched the burner and that was the most exrutiating pain in my entire life!!! I tried ice but as soon as I took my finger off of it I burned again so I tried alcohol and it really worked so it didn't burn anymore!!!!! ;))))))
As a healthcare provider I have learned what works and doesn't, don't use butter! I burned myself on a iron skillet nothing has burned me worse before. All I had around was hand sanitizer which was a high percentage of alcohol. Reccomended 100%.

put a little alcohol in your burns and it will go away. It will burn for a moment but it will get much better. I tried it and it worked.
Dear All -- If you don't already own an Aloe Vera plant then please go buy one! My husband had a bad accident over the weekend, he was lighting a gas smoker grill and it blew up, burnt his whole arm and hand it was pretty severe, he was in a lot of pain. We looked on earth clinic and tried the ACV & ice water, unfortunately it didn't relieve the pain enough, he tried the store bought stuff and nothing worked at all. Mind you he was hoping to not have to go the emergency room since we don't have medical insurance. Finally a friend brought over an Aloe Vera plant and squeezed the juice of a leaf on to his arm, it Immediately soothed the pain. He has been applying it 3X a day the pain has stayed away, the redness is almost gone and there is minimal blistering that is healing Fast. We already went to the health food store to buy our plant I myself have also been using it on my face and hands and it is wonderful!! Thank God for the Awesome Gifts of Nature that he has given us.
YEA, YEA!!!! Egg Whites & Aloe Vera
Today while trying to soften some glue I heated it in the microwave. When I picked it up it had melted a hole in the side of bottle. Hot, hot glue went all in the palm of my right hand. Tried the cold water thing but it didn't help. Got computer going and found out about egg whites and aloe vera. Layed a piece of gauze over burned area and with a large eye dropper alternated egg white and aloe vera. Kept the gauze wet all the time but still must have taken over an hour for all the pain to stop. That has been 4 hours ago ....... the palm is red but there are no blisters and is only sensitive in the worst part of burn. This is first time I have heard of this remedy and thankfully it has worked.
when i was little and got badly sunburned my dad would always mix pure aloe with some vanilla extract, and it always makes the pain stop and keeps me from peeling.
Hi, So my sister and I just tried this apple cider vinegar from b____. We had it sitting in the back of our cupboard and one day we decided, what the heck, mine as well try it out! She had a really bad burn on her leg, so we thought we would try it on externally. Within a day, her burn was minimal compared to what we are sure it would have been!
So anyone who decides to spill hot tea all over their legs, apple cider vinegar poured onto a damp cloth and placed over top of the burn helps majorly!
I once saw years ago a mention in an article that ACV was good for burns. I remember my mother putting it on me when I was young and dumb and got a sunburn. But I don't remember it ever doing much. Strangely though several years ago I got a fairly bad burn on several of my finger tips taking chicken out of the oven. At the time all I could think was that I had to get some ACV, don't ask me why but I did, especially since my experience so far wasn't good. But I got it out (not even the good natural, unfiltered kind) and I soaked my three fingers in ACV for about 45 minutes which was about how long it took for the fingers to quit throbbing. Instead of getting blisters all that happened was about a week after the incident a small patch of dry skin appeared on the finger where I received the worst of the burn. So the skin was still damaged and I still lost it, but there was no blister or lingering pain or tenderness. Same exact thing happened when my young son burned the palm of his hand on a light bulb. When he did it he immediately said through his tears, "Oh, no, not the stinky stuff, Mom!" I had him soak it for about 45 minutes and he experienced the same result I did, just a small patch of dry dead skin about a week after the incident. I now know that ACV isn't very good for sunburns because you would need a vat of the stuff to soak in, but for everything else burn related, I swear by Apple Cider Vinegar. It works miracles!
If you are burned by fire immediately pour ACV over the wound, there will be no pain or scar. Try it and be amazed.
I burned my hand on the cast iron stove top. I did as you do with burns immediately start soaking it in cool water. Well I had it soaking for almost two hours! Every time I took my hand out that burning sharp pain sensation came. I found this baking soda cure and it worked!
Make a baking soda paste. Apply it to small burn. Once it dries and starts to hurt again knock off the dried baking soda and reapply. I continued doing this until I no longer felt the burning sensation.
So cool water for up to 30 min then baking soda trick.
So I put a skillet in the oven because I ran out of pans to use. I pulled it out and left it to cool, about 1 min or 2 later I totally spaced that I had put it in the oven and fully grabbed it with my bare hand. It got a good amount of contact with my hand before I felt the pain. I had heard a couple weeks back about coconut oil for burns so I ran over and grabbed a handful of it, the burn was too painful to continue this method so I put my hand under some cold running water instead. I wrapped a bag of ice in a paper towel and left it on my hand for the next two hours or so, but the moment I removed the ice the pain would come back in full force! I got desperate and started looking up other options when I came across the baking soda method. I was about to go to bed and actually wanted to be able to get a little sleep, but the pain was too much still. I coated my hand with the baking soda/water paste and immediate relief! After a bit the pain did start again, but I read this is normal. I did about 3 more paste sessions, within 5-10 min. of each other, the last paste I left on my hand and covered it with a ziplock so it wouldn't get all over the bed. Was able to fall asleep quickly. In the morning I wash shocked to find no blisters or anything! I was thinking it was definitely a 2nd degree burn and was going to get nasty and oozy, but not at all! My skin still feels a tiny bit crispy and tender, but overall totally useable after just one night! I'll totally use this method again in the future.
Saved by sodium bicarbonate. I burnt myself on my hand and the whole day my hands were in pain (because I was in school) but now it's fine
I burned my finger on a waffle iron. Immediately put ice on it and then immersed in ice water. While it did not blister, this only seemed to heighten the pain- especially when I removed my finger from the water. The pain became so intense I could barely stand it. I desperately searched for a home remedy and found this site. Thank goodness!
I made a heavy thick paste of baking soda and water. About thirty minutes later my finger felt a ton better-so much so I am able to write this post.

It worked pretty well for my burnt thumb :)
