Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

It is the post burn inflammation is what causing the pain.

If you get fever and see the burn wound swelling up , you may have to visit the doctor then as it may be infected.

Take Tab Motrin 400 twice daily for three days,this will reduce the pain.

Wish you good health.
