Plain white flour stops the pain and blistering from burns quickly. It even worked with napalm in Vietnam. Simply put the burn in white flour or the white flour on the burn. It's even better if the flour is cool or cold. We keep some in the freezer.

EC: For those of us who don't know what napalm is...

"U.S. troops used a substance known as napalm from about 1965 to 1972 in the Vietnam War; napalm is a mixture of plastic polystyrene, hydrocarbon benzene, and gasoline. This mixture creates a jelly-like substance that, when ignited, sticks to practically anything and burns up to ten minutes. The effects of napalm on the human body are unbearably painful and almost always cause death among its victims."

Yogurt

I dealing with a bunch of jalapeno peppers. My daughter was helping me, but not touching the peppers. (I had gloves on.) Somehow she got some of the pepper oil onto her hand and touched her eye. Her eye instantly began to burn. The first thing we tried was plain yogurt. It relieved the burning fast and the pain never returned.

Usually my first thought would have been coconut oil, to dilute the jalapeno oil, but this daughter doesn't do well with coconut oil externally.
