When u get any burn wash the area with lots of cold water. This will limit the thermal injury to surrounding areas. If a boil develops don't burst it. You can apply silver nitrate containing creams. It will form a layer over the burns. Please visit a doctor to find out if it has got infected. Especially if you have a lot of pain after the first day. In case of infection you will need dressing and antibiotics and anti inflammatory medicines. I would suggest you always visit a doctor in an emergency like this as we cannot assess the depth of burns or prescribe medicines online. Take care. Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore.
