whats the best thing you can do for a burn RIGHT AFTER it happens?
like a burn from touching the stove or hot pan. I thought i read somewhere that you have to cool them right after this happens? What does that mean? Does that mean that if you don't cool them right then they keep burning even if the skin is not in contact with the hot object?

you should put the burn under cold water and put either butter or aloe on it to soothe the burn and prevent blistering.

You should put it under a cold tap for a good 5 minutes to get the heat out of the burn. By doing that you'll ease the pain and help stop the burn from blistering.

no, it's more a pain thing. run cold water over the burn. That helps the burn a lot. Then put aloe on it, that takes the pain away and helps heal it.

Run it under cool water for 15-20 minutes to pull the heat out of the wound and to prevent further damage.

Run the effected part under cold water, depending on the burn up to 20 mins.

best thing is aloe vera. the plant, break a piece of the plant off an rub it on the burn, instant pain relief and quick healing

DON'T put butter on the burn, as that one answer said! That will hold in the heat and can also cause an infection. That's a stupid old wives' tale.

I would also like to add something to what everyone is telling you about running cold water over the burn. That's fine, but just don't make it VERY cold water or ice water, as this can *shock* the burn and cause more pain. Cool water is best.

Yes, if you don't cool down the burn right away, it basically keeps *cooking* for awhile.
