Milk: Proteins and fat in milk will not only cool down the burn, but will also promote healing. For best results, soak the burn in cool milk for 15 minutes.
Mint toothpaste: Run the burnt area under cold water and after it patting it dry, apply a layer of mint toothpaste. It will cool down immediately.
