I suggest: That you go to type in your browser "burn treatment at home" and go to a site that sells creams for superficial burns. Depending on the skin site, try a little vaseline or cold cream.

Burn: You should see a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgery. There are a number of salves that are helpful. The mainstay of treatment of a superficial burn is clean with soap and water and moisturizers.

Hair remover burns: I can appreciate your frustration. For hair remover burns simply wash the area copiously with cool water. Then apply an antibiotic ointment such as bacitracin, to the area 2-3 times a day. Long er term effects such as skin increased pigmentation would suggest the appropriateness of a visit to a dermatologist.
