There is a wonderful book out called "Doctor Mom's Natural Healthcare for Children" byKathy Duerr, and it lists several remedies for minor burns. Two topical treatments are aloe vera gel, and the other is a paste made from cool water and baking soda. Either of these remedies are applied directly to the burn.

Pure aloe vera is definitely the best thing for burns (apart from cold water first). The active ingredient in it is called mannose. I have a plant of it on the doorstep and use it for cuts and grazes as well.
