    I received an email from somebody that was all about cucumbers, and one of the things mentioned was to rub a burn with a slice of cucumber. I touched my arm twice on the oven racks and hubby remembered this email, so I tried it and WOW, it stopped the pain fast and was not even tender the next day. Really good tip

    I use yoghurt... amazing stuff... stops the pain straight away and the skin doesn't blister.... have used it several times...leaves no marks either.

    I always keep an aloe plant in my house. For a burn, just break off a tip and rub the juice on the burn. Works great, and all natural.

    The flour didn't work for me. I always use March snow.

    When I worked at mcdonalds (100years ago...lol), we used mustard on our burns and it helped.

    Now I have a huge jar of burn ointment (prescription). Got it when I burned the entire palm of my hand (double ouch!)....accidently put my hand on the glass top stove while it was still on.
