Usually not needed: Many doctors prescribe silver sulfadiazine cream, but it isn't necessary unless the burn becomes infected; if that happens, call your doctor. Apply washcloths soaked in cool water as often as possible, and take Ibuprofen or something similar for the pain and inflammation. And please learn the lesson that mr. Sun is trying so hard to teach you: apply a good sunscreen lotion every day.
