In brief: Nair Skin burn

It could help to keep skin moisturized.
Options – use washcloth soaked in cold water or even ice water as a compress x 15 minutes. No not apply ice directly to skin. 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.
