When to Seek Professional Medical Care for a Burn

It’s a smart idea to seek treatment for most burns, as even a minor injury can be very painful and become infected if it’s not properly cleaned and bandaged. We recommend patients visit PhysicianOne Urgent Care if a burn:

  • Causes pain
  • Is swollen
  • Blisters
  • Is notably red
  • Has small white splotches

It’s important to note that severe burns—particularly third-degree burns—should be treated immediately in a hospital setting. Call 911 or go to the nearest ER if a burn:

  • Looks bad but does not cause pain
  • Is numb
  • Covers a large area of the body
  • Was caused by chemicals or electricity
  • Appears leathery, charred, black, white, or brown

"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."
