I burnt my hand and have a small blister. Even with a cool towel it still burns a little. What should I do about it?

In brief: Ice Water

Put you hand in ice water until the stinging goes away, then protect the blister with antibiotic ointment and a sterile bandage.
Watch for signs of infection such as increased redness, pain or swelling. See a doctor if these occur.
