What treatment will help for curling iron burn on scalp?

I burned my scalp curling my hair.

If it is just a slight burn you can put some aloe vera on the scalp with a Q-tip. If you think it is more serious go to the doctor.

Usually you just have to let that heal on its own. Usually you can just try to refrain from useing hair products.

To reduce inflammation, apply ice on and off for 10-15 minutes. A first degree burn (red with no blister) requires some OTC antibiotic creams (like Bacitracin, etc) twice a day and stay out of the sun to prevent discoloration. A second degree burn (swelling and mild blisters) requires a doctor's visit for prescription antibiotics.

A great and easy treatment is aloe gel. The kind sold in stores to relieve sunburn work great for curling iron burns too.
