Burnt skin on thumb, oozing pale yellow viscous liquid. What do I do?

I have burnt a whole thick layer of skin off my thumb right down to the nail, i put it in water for 20 mins then covered it and now in the morning the dressing was really wet, i took it off and my thumb was dripping in a pale yellow quite viscous liquid, i used a tissue to get rid of it but it keeps oozing back, what do i need to do?
