When to Seek Treatment for a Minor Burn
Minor burns—including first-degree burns—can range in severity, with some cases being treatable from home with the application of a cool compress or running water. Other cases, however, will require effective treatment from a reputable urgent care center like PhysicianOne Urgent Care in order to promote proper healing and prevent infection. If you have a first- or second-degree burn (affecting the first one or two layers of skin) that has become swollen, is causing mild pain, leads to blisters, or appears red or splotchy, professional treatment can help.
On the other hand, some burns can be severe enough to warrant emergency care. If a burn fits the following criteria, call 911 immediately or go to the nearest ER:
- A white, black, or brown coloring
- An appearance that is charred or leathery
- Looks severe but causes little to no pain
- Is present on the face or covers a large area of the body
These symptoms may indicate a third- or fourth-degree burn, which is not minor and is considered an emergency.
