PLEASE write down in detail what happened and everything he said to you . The sooner the better; the fresher it is in your mind, the more you will remember. Save all written materials, receipts for medical care and medication, including over-the-counter drugs. Take pictures of your injury, if you haven't already and make sure it is dated somehow. Take another picture every few days and date it. Write down all the effects of your injury, particularly things that you can't do because of it. If you do call HR, write down everything you told them and everything they told you. They may advise you to file a Worker's Compensation claim. It would be very good to talk to a lawyer before do this or sign any type of agreement with the company. Get better quickly and as soon as you are well, find a lawyer. If you're underage, have your parents seek out an attorney for you. You might very well qualify for your county's Legal Aid which will be free or absolutely no more than you can afford. But don't let this pass. It's not right, and it's my strong belief that you are entitled to damages. If that manager gets away with treating you like this, he will do it to more employees. This is what civil law is for, IMO. (I work in the legal field, BTW.)

100, I think OP can sue. I believe they have to pay for medical bills and compensation for a work related accident. Providing OP did not do it on purpose and there was an injury, they would have to pay the medical fees or find some lotion or something. But all they did was give OP a McFlurry, so I'm pretty sure that (s)he can sue.

um people, the OP is suppose to wear safty equipment while cleaning the grill (including heat resistant gloves) so this was the OPs fault technically if they decided not too...

Wow look at how much space the person took up. What a tool.

Regardless of who's at fault (presumably the OP's clumsiness, or the employer's failure to prevent), the employer is required in most countries (including where I come from - Australia) to have a decent First Aid station, even if it's just a chair and a First Aid Kit, which is capable of treating things like burns. The employer/manager at this particular chain is obviously a jerk, and presumably is either an arrogant boss, or someone who doesn't give a crap if he loses half his employees because he reckons he's so good he could replace them the next day (which is partially true, and that's why Macca's is scary).

I totally agree, sue! although I would seek counsel NOW, while you keep notes, pics, etc. What happened to you is not legal. I'm about to graduate from Tulane Law school in New Orleans.

I wouldn't say it's fake but the op did probably over exaggerate. at my store we are only required to send them to the doctors if it's a serious injury such as a broken bone or deep cuts, if it's a mild burn (which I assume this was and was overexaggerated) then the store will generally have burn aid and bandaging in stock. the incident reports we have do suggest that you give the crew member a free meal though.

Also, anyone who assumes that all managers are actually legitimate enough to write the incident report has way too much faith in humanity. Some places I've worked give bonuses to managers who keep incident counts down, and some managers will do anything for that bonus, even at the detriment of their employees.

And they're especially prone to trying to buck the system when they have a minor who isn't apt to be aware of the procedure they are supposed to be following. This incident, even if it is a simple burn, should have been documented. After all, it doesn't take much of an injury to lead to an infection that worsens things dramatically.

Same thing happened to my sister at A&W she got a 2nd/3rd degree burn, and the manager didnt let her go home, she had to work her hours, she didnt get a free meal or nothing.

Did she contact higher authorities? The manager has to have some sort of first aid to help your sister. If she didn't make an effort to correct what her manager did, it could lead to others going through the same situation.
