When Is Treatment Recommended for a Minor Burn?

Burns are a very common household injury. Thankfully, discomfort from most first-degree burns can be treated at home by placing a cool (not cold) compress or running water on the affected area.

It’s a good idea to seek minor burn treatment at a reputable urgent care center like PhysicianOne Urgent Care if you have a second-degree burn. This type of burn affects the first two layers of skin and may:

  • Blister
  • Cause pain
  • Become swollen
  • Appear red or splotchy

Emergency burn care is necessary for third- and fourth-degree burns and larger injuries. Call 911 immediately or go to the nearest ER if you or someone around you has a burn that:

  • Looks severe but causes little to no pain
  • Is white, black, or brown
  • Has a charred or leathery appearance
  • Occurs on the face or covers a large area of the body

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Patient
Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Patient
Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Patient
Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
