    Don't itch it, makes it worse. And put cold water on it, it works quite well actually.

    Put some cooling cream on it, I used to know what it was called but I forget.

    You could try an Antihistamine cream....

    Why would she want to put antihistamine on a burn?

    Cool it down, most injuries itch when healing anyway.

    run it under really cold water, then cover it with a plaster or bandage.
    don't put any cremes or ointments on it.

    Get some Burneze. It's got local anaesthetic in, so it should stop the itching.

    i put aloe vera on burns, it's good for sunburns and i used to put it on healing cuts as well so i'm sure that would work.
