When to Seek Professional Burn Care

Thankfully, most first-degree burns are mild and can be remedied at home by placing a cool (not icy) compress on the affected area. If you or someone around you has a second-degree burn, though, you should promptly visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care for minor burn treatment. A second-degree burn affects the top two layers of skin and is characterized by:

  • Blistering
  • Swelling
  • Pain
  • A markedly red or splotchy appearance

Third- and fourth-degree burns are more invasive and require immediate treatment in an emergency room. Be sure to call 911 or go to the nearest ER if a burn:

  • Looks substantial but causes little to no pain
  • Is white, black, or brown
  • Has a leathery or charred appearance

It’s also important to go to the ER for care if a burn results from electricity or chemicals, occurs on the face, or covers a large portion of the body.

"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."
