    Omg, calm down. It's just a burn.

    Put it under cold water for a few minutes. And apply ice if needed. If it's a severe burn then you need to go to the ER.

    It varies based on how much skin was burnt. If it was only like the top layer, then you shouldnt worry. Be sure to place a slice of a potato on it. It is known to reduce scarring. Get some ice in a bag and place it over the area.

    Based upon the size of the scar it could take a few days to a week or two. But if it is just your finger, i'd say up to a week maximum.

    If you see that its scarring, place scar gel on it to reduce skin discoloration.

    P.S - FEEL BETTER!

    Do not cover it.

    Apply ointment. Three four time in a day

    Put daily under running normal water two times

    a day if wound is not there

    Keep it clean by using cotton softly

    In seven days it will starts healing.

    Becoming blister will be good sign it

    Indicate flow out of bad liquid. It also

    Indicate that below blister there is a good skin developing.

    OMG calm down, its just a burn, you're not going to die. it takes about 1-3 days to heal, and after a while, it will leave the slightest ring around where you burn you're finger. I burned my finger on a hot iron when I was around 5, and I have a barely noticeable line around where I was burned. You'll be fine.

    This might sound weird but if it just happened cut a potato and put were you got burned on it, (the potato takes in the heat)

    dont run it under cold water it might blister the pain should go away in a couple hours but it might take some days to get better

    HOPE THIS HELPS

    First of all, run it under cold water. Then switch from icing it to heating it with a heating pad. After your finger starts feeling a little better, put some pressure on it. If you can't go to sleep, put a glass of cold water next to your bed and keep your finger in it until you fall asleep or it gets to cold!

    Run it under cold water, if you have bactine i would put that on tht will help it heal faster. Just continue to put that on ad it should feel a little better. Hope this helps!

    Also, put some ice on it, then it should feel way better. It sould be fully healed in a week.

    Put some Neosporin on it, and aloe helps with more then just sunburn sometimes, and don't wrap it up unless you actual need to go do something where you think that it will get bumped and hurt more. It needs to be aired out, just make sure it does not get infected.

    Hahahaha Die???? If it just happened pour some milk on it if not you may want to go into the doctor so they can give you some ointment for it but I am certain and 100% sure that you are not going to die.
