How do you stop the stinging of a burn?

I burned the side of my thumb, right along the nail, pretty badly. I'm not going into how it happened because it was way too ridiculous... but it was from a flame. I immedIately ran cold water over it and have been soaking it for two hours now, but whenever I take it out, the stinging sensation is horrible. ... show more I burned the side of my thumb, right along the nail, pretty badly.

I immedIately ran cold water over it and have been soaking it for two hours now, but whenever I take it out, the stinging sensation is horrible. I can't tell if the white area forming is a blister or a scar but it hurts- badly.

What can I do besides soaking it? I typed this all with one hand. Help.
