Nair Skin burn: Options – use washcloth soaked in cold water or even ice water as a compress x 15 minutes. Petroleum based lubricants/ jellies/ lotions (aquaphor ointment, vaseline) can help to maintain moisture. Hydrocortisone cream can be applied for significant inflammation. For blistering – consult with your doctor.

General Surgery 35 years experience
Yes: First degree burns are basically sun burn second degree burns are typically associated with blister formation. You should at least call your doctor if you sustain such a burn. Third degree burns typically do not hurt much after the initial injury, have decreased sensation, no blisters, and the skin looks waxy and shiny. You need to have a physician see that for proper treatment.

Why does it burn when my husband ejaculates inside of me?

Possible allergy: It is not an unusual finding. A fair amount of women have discomfort after ejaculation in the vagina. This is usually from irritation from the ejaculate or the sperm. In fact, there are some women who are allergic to the proteins found on the sperm. This is not dangerous but using a condom will help alleviate this problem.
