How to Treat a Minor Burn

If you have a first-degree burn (which typically causes pain and redness) or a second-degree burn (which may also produce swelling and blisters), you’ll likely be able to treat it at home by:

  • Running it under cool water (avoid using cold water or applying ice)
  • Keeping the area clean
  • Regularly checking for fever, drainage, and other signs of infection
  • Taking pain medication
  • Applying aloe vera gel (for a sunburn)
  • Applying antibiotic cream and lightly covering it with gauze (for a thermal burn)

However, some minor burns require professional care. Be sure to consult with an experienced provider if:

  • Your burn is at least 3 inches wide or located on your face, hands, feet, genitalia, buttocks, or over a major joint
  • You’re experiencing severe pain
  • You think you might have an infection
  • Your symptoms aren’t showing any signs of improvement after 48 hours

Third- and fourth-degree burns always require emergency care since they can be life-threatening. You should call 911 or head to a nearby emergency room if you experience any numbness or if your skin appears deep red, brown, white, black, charred, or leathery.

"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."
