Skin burned/melted! Idk what to do next. ?

I burned my hand about an hour ago... I have a 1st degree burn on my thumb (the palm side of my hand) and I believe I have a 2nd degree burn on the top (colored) part of my hand. The skin melted and I see the white meat. Some of the skin that got burned is still on but it's wrinkly and a little darker than my actual skin tone, also I can lift it yup with a pair of tweezers. I really don't want to go to the hospital...

Should I remove all of the skin or leave it there?

The white meat isn't burning at all. I just feel a little sting.

What should I put on it?

The skin,about a couple inches away, stings if I touch it. What should I do?

I just put some triple antibiotic ointment over the burn on the top of my hand...

Sorry it's so long :(

    Go to the hospital! The fact that there is not a lot of pain is a BAD thing. Leave it alone and please go see a medical professional.
