Nearly fainted and accidentally burned my finger in 350 degree oven. Can't take nsaids. Hurts crazy w/o ice. Is it ok to apply ice continuously on it?
Yes, 20 minutes: Yes, for up to 20 minutes. The most important question: is there just redness or is there blistering or is it pale and leathery?

What to do about grease burn from wrist to almost shoulder that is welted up and burns like fire and tingles?
See surgeon: That is at least a second degree burn and crosses at least one major upper extremity joint.

Ice: For all burns immediately put ice on it for 15-20 minutes - which can be an ice pack, a bag of frozen vegetables, or whatever is at hand. This will do an amazing amount of good. Do not slather it with butter or vaseline. Protect it thereafter from abrasion. See a doctor if the burn appears deep or the pain is too severe. But always think ice first. ...Read more
Cool water: Use cool/luke-warm water first to stop the burning. Leave blisters intact. Silvadene (silver sulfadiazine) cream is specifically for burns—helps cool & prevent infections—but may be by prescription only. If burn involves much of hand or other large areas, seek emergency help at once to prevent complications. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Apply ice: Ice can help even applied later. The thing to do for any burn, immediately, is to grab a pack of frozen vegetables or an ice pack or ice in a baggie and apply it for 15 minutes to the burned area. This will reduce the pain, limit the spread of the burn, and be of great relief. If you did not do these, or applied oil or butter (useless!), then you will have a painful area to deal with. ...Read more
