When to Go to Urgent Care for Minor Burn Treatment

It’s important to know the difference between a minor burn and a severe burn that warrants emergency medical care. In general, first- and second-degree burns can be treated at fully equipped urgent care centers like PhysicianOne Urgent Care. Signs of these burns include:

  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Blistering
  • Swelling
  • Small red or white splotches

While urgent care centers can provide treatment for minor burns, third-degree burns (the most severe type) should be addressed in an ER. Call 911 or head straight to the ER if a burn:

  • Looks significant but does not cause pain
  • Is numb
  • Appears charred, leathery, black, brown, or white

It’s also wise to go to the ER if a burn covers a large area of the body or was caused by chemicals or electricity, even if it does not look severe.

This was the fastest, easiest, and best doctor's visit. The provider was extremely kind and helpful. I explained my symptoms, the provider asked a few followup questions, and then she issued a script. I will absolutely be using this service again and would recommend to anyone.
