In brief: Topical treatment

I thought i answered this yesterday but i would recommend seeing a physician to prevent scarring.
In the mean time i would treat these burns with topical antibiotic ointment and topical 1% Hydrocortisone available over the counter 4 times a day. This treatment best works after you flush the site with water for at least 15 minutes directly after exposure.
