1. Cold Water

You can stop a burn from spreading by running cold water over the burn area for several minutes within seconds of being burned. You can also place a cold compress over the affected area. Repeat the remedy every few hours to relieve pain. Do not use ice as it can restrict blood flow, which can eventually cause damage to the delicate tissues. You can use cold whole milk instead of water.

2. Potato paste

If you’ve found yourself with searing hot red skin, root up a few potatoes. Potatoes have been known as a pain reliever throughout the years, working particularly well on minor skin irritations and soothing scratches, bites, and burns, as well as possibly reducing inflammation. Some people feel that the juice of the potato works the best, while others feel just slices are sufficient. Try both.

3. Coconut Oil and Lemon Juice

Coconut oil and lemon juice both can help to treat minor burn. Coconut oil is rich in Vitamin E and fatty acids such as lauric acid, myristic acid and capric acid that offer anti-fungal, anti-oxidizing and anti-bacterial properties. Lemon juice has acidic properties that naturally lighten the scars. For scalds due to burns, take coconut oil and add some some lemon juice to it. Mix it properly and apply it on the scalds to facilitate healing.


Yogurt also makes a person feel better but you should wait for at least 30 minutes before you apply this. Swabbing olive oil too brings relief.

5. Honey

Honey can effectively disinfect wounds and help heal burns. When applied to a burn, honey draws fluids out ofthe tissues and thus cleans the burned area.

  1. Spread honey on a gauze bandage and put it directly on the burn.
  2. Change the bandage three to four times a day.

6. Black Tea Bags

The tannic acid in black tea can help draw heat out of a burn and thus reduce pain.

  • Put three tea bags in a cup of cool water and let them sit for a few minutes. Then dab the tea bags gently on the burned area.
  • You can also put cold, wet tea bags directly on the burn and wrap them with a piece of gauze to hold them in place.


Sometimes, putting a banana peel on the burned area of the skin till it becomes black has proved beneficial for burn injuries.
