I burned the pointer finger on my dominant hand lighting a candle this morning. It was charred black for a bit, but after showering and running it under cold water most of the black coloring has gone away. But it still friggin HURTS and especially hurts to use it.
Which is problematic. Because it's my dominant hand, and I'm a cashier / stocker.
So any tips to minimize the pain? When I touch it the spot I burned is pretty numb to it, like I don't feel things. But the internal pain is killer.

Coconut oil is an excellent source of skin-healing vitamin E and it also contains fatty acids that are anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, which help keep your burn from becoming infected. If a scald has left a nasty mark on your skin, one home remedy suggests adding lemon juice to the coconut oil before massaging it into the mark. The acidic properties of lemon juice will help lighten the scar while the coconut oil helps it heal.1
