I was welding today and a spark went and burned through my carharts and my boxers and slightly burned the tip of my foreskin it doesn't hurt that much but what would be the best way of taking care of a small burn (i already took the initial burn care processes) always wear your chaps and i now understand why.

For now, be sure to keep the area clean, and don't put anything like ointments or butter on it. You could also cover it with a gauze bandage, although it may be a little awkward to do so due to the placement of the burn.
Watch out for signs of infection, too- redness, swelling, oozing, or fever. If you see those signs, get into a doctor to get it looked at.
