I recommend gently cleaning the burn with cleanser like Cetaphil, you can find it at most drugstores, and then applying Neosporin ointment. Try to stay out of the sun and wear sunscreen if you can't avoid it. ...Read more

neosporin can cause allergic reactions, just vasoline is good to start with ...Read more
