You do not want to wrap a burn. What I mean by a compress is take a wash cloth dipped in warm water an put a little mild soap on the cloth, work in to a bit of a lather and then press the cloth to the wound. The soap will help clean the wound and make the surface slippery to help break up any crusty stuff. Do that a few times, then start to gently wipe to get it clean and get all the crusty stuff away, and open the wound up, It could take some light scrubbing, you want that wound pink again. Then I would put some moist medicine on it, like neosporin ointment or furacin, nothing to dry it up for the first few days, stay away from the blue sprays. Then as it starts to look better, less weepy then you can start to dry it out.
