    Do you know any home-remedy for burnt skin?

    I burnt my finger with hot oil. I applied some butter on. you got any better solution?

    wash the butter off that holds the heat in and worsens the burn.  Run it under cold water and apply pure aloe gel to the burn after it has cooled a bit. 

    You can also get liquid vitamin E in capsules.  Break open a capsule and rub that into the burn to help the skin heal. 

    A green tea bag soaked in cold water and placed on the burn as a compress can also help.  See my hub on sunburns and treating/reversing skin damage for other ideas.

      you're very welcome. Butter is an old wives tale and it actually makes burns worse because heat can't escape through it.  An Aloe plant is great to grow in the kitchen, break off a leaf whenever needed to squeeze juice from.

    Use 1/2 an onion and put it into the blender to puree it, Pour it into a scooper and dip your finger in it. Then apply the onion to your finger and wrap with Reynolds wrap.

    Never put butter, ointment, heavy creams, or salves ect. on a burn, wether its from cooking oil, the sun, chemicals, or otherwise. It holds the heat in. Dependant upon the source and severity of the burn, for oil, cooking burns, or sunburn use plain vinegar. Either soak the finger in a shallow bowl of it, or apply a compress, of a paper towel dipped in vinegar. Continue to apply until the burning sensation stops. For chemical burns, minor ones, dip paper towel or gauze in cold milk, and apply. Do not rub, always dab, as you may damage the skin. After the burning sensation stops, apply aloe, to help to heal the damaged skin. For any major burn, best to seek the advice of a physician.

    Apply aloe vera gel. It is wonderful for not only allaying the burning sensation, it heals too.
    You could also apply pure honey. It is a great antibacterial.

    Honey and aloe vera are the 2 best natural remedies in my opinion. I've had excellent results with my aloe vera plant from the garden.

      I never heard of honey, but I have heard of onion juice. Do you just apply as needed or do you have to mix with water? I know its an anti bacterial, never thought of it.

      No need to mix the honey with water, just flip open the lid and squeeze some out.

    Take off the butter, butter is an insulation factor so it will trap the heat and double the damage. Apply some aloe vera gel if the burn isn't an open wound (if open do not apply aloe vera, unless you fancy having aloin poisoning). For open wounds apply ice immediately and hold it there. When the wound closes apply the gel.
