    Spread Crest gel toothpaste on the burn and you will not have a blister. I burned my hand yesterday, headed for the bathroom and the Crest toothpaste gel, today you would never know I had a burn. It must be Crest gel.

    For instant relief and no blister use a slice of raw onion.

    I keep a jar of Vitamin E capsules (with oil in them) in my refrigerator. Pierce the capsule with a pin and squeeze the oil on the burn. Takes the pain away almost instantly. Does the same for bee stings!

    Tide powder laundry detergent. Make a bowl of water with tide . Enought tide to make the water feel slippery. Soak the burn in the tide water. No soreness, no blisters, no scars. Works everytime. A very old country woman taught me this after I was involved in helping to put out a big fire. Both palms were burned. :thumbup:

    Holding your finger in flour works, also.

    Aloe vera- immediately stops the pain, helps it heal and doesn't contain any nasty man-made chemicals.
