I just spilled a cup of boiling water all over my arm! what do I do?

ive been running it in cold water for 5 ish mins and my whole forearm is still really red. I quickly researched a little and it said to put on a lotion or aloe vera? I don't have and aloe vera and what kind of lotion do I use? what do I do next?

It is already one hour still you can put normal water over it. You can also dip your arm in normal water(not ice water). If some blisters have already come then use BURNOLL CREAM (an antiseptic cream). Do not burst the blisters on your own. Use soframycin powder when they get burst.

I would keep an ice pack over it. And wouldn't use lotion. and see a doctor.

tough it out until you get some. I got a bad sunburn on my baldhead and aloe vera took care of it.
