What should I do if I have been burned?

How a burn is treated depends on the severity of your burn. Minor burns may be treated at home, but more serious burns may require emergency medical care. Generally:

Minor burns, such as first or some second degree burns, may be treated following these steps:

1.       run cool (not iced) water over the burn or soak

2.       cover burn with sterile non-adhesive bandage or cloth

3.       if necessary, over-the-counter pain medication may be used to relieve pain and reduce inflammation

Serious burns such as second, third, and fourth degree burns, need immediate medical attention. While waiting for help to arrive, you can follow these guidelines:

  • don’t remove burned clothing
  • don’t immerse large or severe burns in cold water
  • check for breathing, coughing, and movement
  • elevate burned areas of the body
  • cover burned area with a cool, sterile bandage or cloth
