Yep! That's what we did. I was hoping some of you seasoned friends had some cool, non-medicinal tricks! Thanks Kidz!

I've tried banning them from my school, but they won't listen to me. LOL!!

I agree with rinsing the minor burns with cool water.

I have too! It never fails that I always end up with casualties and I wish there was more I could do to help soothe it besides just the cool water rinses!

I rinse with cold water and apply a thin layer of yellow mustard to staff... I learned it while working as a waitress in nursing school.

Mustard?? That was unexpected!! Curious to know if you know why it works!
