Should I Go to Urgent Care or the ER for Burn Care?
It can sometimes be tricky to determine whether a burn is a medical emergency. It’s best to err on the side of caution and go to the ER if a burn:
- Looks severe but causes little or no pain
- Appears white, black, or brown
- Is charred or leathery
- Occurs on the face or affects a large area of the body
- Is caused by chemicals or electricity
Otherwise, a reputable urgent care center such as PhysicianOne Urgent Care is a good place to turn for minor burn treatment. We recommend seeking professional medical care if a burn:
- Is painful
- Is notably red or has white splotches
Our experienced practitioners have the know-how needed to ease painful burn symptoms, properly clean and bandage wounds, and take steps to prevent infection. If appropriate, pain medication and antibiotics can be prescribed to address infected burns.
