You would be better off to get a bottle of the Aloe Solarcaine to keep for small burns. But, do not put on anything that will seal the burn...that just holds the heat in and does not allow the burn to breath, it needs oxygen.

If you suspect more than a first degree burn, please!!!! Go have it seen by a doctor!

Princess, thanks so much for your advise. You were right on. The cool water did work better and I did take the full amount of the tylenol 3. I was able to sleep and the pain is mostly gone today. I am very groggy this morning so I don't think I am going to drive for a little while.
For the record, at the time of the burn I was hurting so much that I couldn't think what to do except to ask people who habitually work with hot oil and who would therefore have some experience with this kind of burn. I know that no one on this site is or should be responsible for such things but I do very much appreciate the help and concern of everyone here. Thanks so much.

Here's some good information from Snopes about burns, how to treat at home and which ones to seek medical attention for. Based on what you've said thus far, I'd recommend seeing a doctor ASAP. The risk of infection is high.

I keep a bottle of Aloe jell on hand at all times. It works like a champ.

Since the burn is not blistered afte 30 hours I guess it must be a first degree burn, Thankfully. I have already stated that I don't have any aloe in the house but thanks for the advice. You guys are always so helpful...in any circumstance.

Sounds like you need to take it easy! A day of vegging in front of the tv with lots of good chick flicks on DVD and heal up!
