Cool/tepid water: Immediately place the burned area (if not extremely severe) in cool or tepid water to stop the burning. Gently washing with cool water & soap will remove residual oil. Do not remove blisters (they provide a sterile "bandage"). If a large area of hand/face/etc is involved, seek medical help at once for definitive treatment to prevent contractures. Do not smear burn with grease/butter/the like.

Cool butter: The active ingredient of a hot pepper burn is a colorless irritant phenolic amide c18h27no3 found in various capsicums that gives hot peppers their hotness and that is used in topical creams for its pain relief properties. This burning can be neutralized by butter fat applied to the skin or drinking whole or buttermilk.

Combination Training: The best way to burn fat is to do a combination of cardiovascular work outs such as running, elliptical machines, step or other aerobics classes combined with weight training several times weekly . If you do no want to build muscle bulk then i recommend less total weight but more repetitions. It also is beneficial to mix your work outs in type and intensity. Try intervals keep challenging yourself.

Location, size,deep: Depth of the burn (severity), burn location, and burn size dictate treatment. Any burn on the hands, feet, face, or genitals should be seen promptly. Any large burn, burn that doesn't hurt, or burn that sloughs should be seen. Electric burns don't really "scald" but they should all be seen. Simple mild contact with hot water can be tx with running under cold water and watched.
