The Mayo Clinic says this, and it depends on whether your burn is 1st degree, 2nd degree, or 3rd degree burns...

I disagree with the Mayo Clinic somewhat in its cautions about using ice on minor burns. Ice is appropriate for superficial burns to prevent scar tissue from developing and to cool the tissue down rapidly so that it doesn't continue "cooking"--it could be problematic for anything more severe than that.

For superficial burns, a benzocaine spray made for use on sunburns is appropriate for the pain, too.

sublock can work, but a heat soothing lotion like banana boat works really well, as it pulls the heat out of the burn, so it isnt so bad.

Putting ice directly on the skin can be almost as painful as burning

I hear if you rub tooth paste the pain will go away. Try it, you've got nothing to loose.

Aloe Vera! Wrap them in a cold wet towel. Pop some ibuprofen too. I'm sorry that sucks! How did you type this if your hands are burned?

Aloe is the best to ease the pain. By far.

Use flour and put pressure on the area where it burns.

Aloe Vera if not, Vitamin E. How were you able to type this question, with your hands hurting so bad. Perhaps you should go to the emergency.

Pick up some aloe vera gel at your local pharmacy. It helps soothe burns. It won't make the pain go away completely but it will reduce it.

Stop using ice! You can actually do more damage. Cold water works better. If you have aloe use that, or burn creme you can get at any drug store.
