To relieve the pain of a minor first-degree burn, apply a slice of raw potato, a piece of fresh pumpkin pulp or a slice of raw onion. Leave the potato, pumpkin pulp or onion on the burn for 15 minutes, take it off and wait five minutes. Then put a fresh piece on for another 15 minutes or until the sting disappears.
