"In case of a burn is recommended for a special ointment"

FALSE
The only truly effective first aid in case of burns is dropping the tissue temperature in the affected area to prevent spread of heat which could cause further damage. Doctors recommend keeping the heated or burned area under running cold water for 20 minutes. The ointment is used only later on to relieve pain. If a large-scale burns, consult a doctor urgently, until then it is recommended a constant cooling the affected area.
