I can heartily recommend the Silvadene cream-get a big tub of it. While it is effective on all levels of burns, your most likely usage would be for severe sunburn or scalding. It is easy to forget the level of incapacitation that a severe sunburn can cause. It was one of the most frequently used items in my medecine chest on merchant ships-who'd think there were so many ways to get burnt?
