The first thing to do, assuming it is a minor burn, is to run cold water over the area to stop the burning. If it is a major burn, call 911 immediately or take the victim to the hospital. Do not put butter or any oil on the burn. This may sound odd, but the absolute best thing I found for burns, is a product called Vagisil. It is used for yeast infections, but it has a numbing agent in it which really helps with new burns. You can also use topical burn ointment or spray and take ibuprofen or acetaminophen for the pain.
