Same as any burn. : Chemical burns need to be cleaned out. This is the first order of business. If the chemical is still on the skin the burns will continue to get worse. If quite severe needs major medical care, maybe debridement and possible antibiotics. See your doctor for definitive care.

Cold compresses: Cold moist compresses and a moisturizer should afford you much symptomatic relief. Try vaseline, it is non irritating and economical.
