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.

Patient
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!"

"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."

Patient
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."
