I had a skin burn from boiling hot water a few days ago on my upper side of hand. Now it has started to shed off. Any medicine? Is it normal?

In brief: Most of the time

just dry dressings , is first degree burn with small areas of second degree burns , expected to heal completely with out requiring ski graft ,some scaring is possible.
If you can use ' Siverdine ' ointment or any mild antibiotic ointment to prevent local infection.
