What Does Burn Treatment Involve?
Burn treatment begins with you! After sustaining a burn, you should immediately cool off the area with cool (not cold) water or a wet cloth. Remove any jewelry near the burn and allow blisters to form without breaking them. Loosely cover the burn with sterile gauze and visit a medical provider like PhysicianOne Urgent Care for further care.
The main goals of burn treatment are to clean the area, prevent infection, and stimulate healing. Our clinicians can:
- Apply special burn creams and ointments
- Provide pain medication to help ease discomfort
- Properly dress burns to encourage healing and prevent infection
When to Seek Emergency Burn Treatment
As an urgent care center, PhysicianOne Urgent Care is not able to treat potentially life- or limb-threatening burns. This includes third-degree burns, which reach deep into the fat layer of the skin and are characterized by:
- Black, brown, or white coloring
- A dry, leathery texture
- A lack of feeling in the affected area due to nerve damage
If you or someone around you sustains a third-degree burn, head to the emergency room or call 911 immediately.
