Ask me how I know!
+1 on this. A cloth mitt saturated with boiling water will essentially HOLD boiling water against your skin. You need a heat resistant silicone mitt, available anywhere they sell kitchen stuff. I also learned this the hard way.

Horrible advice, theres a huge chance of infection from this. The ONLY topical creams that should be applied to burns are silver nitrate cream and one other that i forget the name of and neither are otc. Im an RN and EMT fyi

Aye. You could probably put butter on a first degree burn but OP looks to have at least a 2nd degree burn (blistering) so sanitation is important.

You should never put butter or any other oil or fat based whatever on a burn, not only for infection reasons, it also creates a heat trapping layer of insulation. You need to wick the heat away, not trap it

Butter goes on bread, not on burns.

I was once told to put mustard on a burn. I decided not to because this person could not read a clock.

That is laugh-out-loud funny!!!!! I will remember that: do not take advice from someone who cannot tell time.
