I've been a line cook for 10 years and I constantly burn my finger tips. I don't have time to run my hand under water, soak it in ice, cover with flour, etc.... The only thing I've found to work for instant pain relief from a burned finger tip is to wrap a rubber band or hair tie around your knuckle a few times, reducing circulation, don't cut off too much circulation or it will hurt and throb even worse. As your finger tip becomes cool to the touch, gradually unwrap your finger. Provides near instant pain relief and works every time.
