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:
- 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
