Hello, currently it must be an active burn for which you should apply a topical antibiotic cream and take an oral antibiotic course for 5 days so that no secondary bacterial infection happens.
Secondly after the scab has formed start applying a moistoriser cream to make skin softer
Eat lots of citrous food for quick healing. take care
