How to Know If You Need Professional Burn Care
Do you need to see a medical provider about your burn? The answer will depend on the symptoms you’re experiencing.
First- & Second-Degree Burns
If you’re experiencing pain, redness, swelling, and blistering, you likely have either a first-degree burn or a second-degree burn. Minor burns like these can usually be treated at home (it generally takes about one to two weeks for a minor burn to heal), but you should consult with a professional if:
- Your burn is at least three inches wide
- You’re experiencing severe pain or signs of an infection (for example, fever or discharge)
- Your burn hasn’t shown any signs of improvement after 48 hours
- Your burn is located on your face, hands, genitalia, buttocks, feet, or above a major joint
Third- & Fourth-Degree Burns
If your skin appears to be deep red, brown, white, black, charred, or leathery or you’re experiencing numbness, you likely have a third- or fourth-degree burn. Burns of this nature require emergency treatment, so you should call 911 or get to a nearby hospital as soon as possible.
