How Long Does It Take for a Minor Burn to Heal?
First-degree burns (which affect only the top layer of skin) and second-degree burns (which also extend to the next layer of skin) typically take about one to two weeks to heal. Minor burn symptoms (possibly including redness, pain, swelling, and blistering) can usually be treated at home, but you should still seek treatment if your burn:
- Is at least 3 inches wide
- Causes severe pain
- Produces signs of an infection (such as fever or discharge)
- Hasn’t improved after 48 hours
- Is located on your face, hands, genitals, buttocks, feet, or over a major joint
If you have a third-degree burn (which affects the deepest layer of skin) or a fourth-degree burn (which extends to the muscles and/or bones), your skin may appear deep red, brown, white, black, charred, or leathery, and you might experience numbness. If that’s the case, you need to call 911 or get to a nearby emergency room as quickly as possible.
