The experienced providers at our Enfield, Connecticut, immediate care center have extensive experience treating minor burns. And, like all of our services, minor burn treatment is offered on a walk-in basis.

What Does Minor Burn Treatment Involve?

First-degree burns (which affect the top layer of skin and cause pain and redness) and second-degree burns (which affect the top two layers of skin and cause pain, redness, swelling, and blistering) can often be treated at home by:

  • Running cool (but not cold) water over the burn
  • Taking pain medication
  • Applying aloe vera gel (in the case of a sunburn)
  • Applying an antibiotic cream and loosely covering the area with gauze (in the case of a burn caused by a hot surface or liquid, fire, or steam)
  • Keeping the burn clean and monitoring it for signs of infection (which could include fever or discharge)

However, you should consult with a trained medical provider if:

  • Your burn is at least three inches wide
  • You’re experiencing severe pain or the signs of an infection
  • Your symptoms haven’t improved within 48 hours
  • Your burn is located on your buttocks, face, feet, genitalia, hands, or over a major joint

Keep in mind that if you have a third-degree burn (which affects the deepest layer of skin and produces a deep red, brown, white, black, charred, or leathery appearance) or a fourth-degree burn (which affects the muscles and/or bones and often involves nerve damage), you should call 911 or get to a nearby emergency room as quickly as possible, since burns this severe can be life-threatening.

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

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!"

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."

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."

Somers, NY
