    Burn your hand? No, that is not right. Chargers get warm...but they do not get hot enough to burn anything. That could start a fire. Take it to an apple store and let them replace it.

    This. I was assuming it wasn't that hot. Take it in immediately.

    When a charger gets that hot, there's very likely a short in the internal wiring. A replacement is definitely warranted.
