Hello! Welcome to HealthcareMagic!

I understand your concern. I don't suggest Betnovate for burning.

Some advice that I can give you are: 

1) Soaking the wound in cool water for five minutes or longer.
2) Taking Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen for pain relief.
3) Applying Lidocaine (an anesthetic) with Aloe Vera gel or cream to soothe the skin.
4) Using an antibiotic ointment and loose gauze to protect the affected area.

Hope my answer was helpful.If you have any other question Ill be glad to help.

Thank you for the query.

Take care
