When I was little I burnt my hand while mishandling a bag of just-popped popcorn. I was staying at a friend's house at the time and her parents weren't home. We had no idea what to do so we went into their bathroom and literally started trying random things to get the insane burning sensation to go away. While I kept my hand under the faucet, my friend rummaged through the cabinets. We tried aloe vera gel for sunburns, neosporin, toothpaste, etc. Nothing worked until my friend decided it would be funny to try her dad's shaving cream. So we did and it actually worked! Took the pain right out. I've since attempted to use my own (women's) shaving cream after burns but there is something in men's shaving cream (I've always used Gilette shave gel) that works like a charm.
