    what ever you do, DONt use ice.
    Apply some antiseptic cream perhaps, aloe vera is the best if you have any.

    If you've got some ice-stick it in a sandwich bag or similar and then cover with a tea towel or several pieces of kitchen roll and keep that on it for a while. It will stop stinging eventually, just be patient

    Germolene might help. It's fairly cheap (a coupla quid?) and it acts as both antiseptic and anaesthetic.

    Also, wrap your fingers in a bandage if the pain in that bad. The pharmacist will point you to the best one for a burn.

    bonjela is for mouth ulcers If the burn isn't that bad-more just a quick surface burn then you should be fine without the cream. Its going to sting but it won't last long.

    Germolene and if possible a bandage always works for me. Try not thinking about it too much as well though.

    Well its not gonna make the pain magically disappear-its more to prevent infection really cos its antiseptic.

    Go get some calamine and glycerin cream from boots.
    Or there's a spray called burneeze which is meant to be really cooling.

    get a pillow and punch it Take your pain and turn it into aggression! grrr!

    Either that or put ice on it with towels as someone suggested, if it gets cold enough it can numb it

    Any pain killers you got really, ibuprofen?

    Erm, if you actually did what i said instead of just moaning, then your fingers would no longer be hurting.
    That's the last time i give you advise.

    don't put any creams/moisturisers on it..

    just keep it cold.

    you might want to cover it with clingfilm to prevent infection, but I don't think your burn is that serious.
