Depends on the Burn. First degree burns (skin that is only red and sore) can be treated with cool compresses and oral pain medications. Second degree burns (the outer layer of skin blisters off and leaves a painful, wet surface) and third degree burns (more severe, deeper burns that often are painless) should be treated by a plastic surgeon and not a home remedy due to the likelihood of infection and scarring.
Ice is nice. If it is a first degree burn (red skin only). If you have a larger second degree burn (blisters) or third degree (with charred skin), don't treat that at home but see a doctor to make sure you heal up ok. Poorly treated burns can cause many long term problems.
