Treatments for Burns

Burns can result in injuries and tissue damage, which can range from something minor to life-altering.

More than 100,000 individuals are hospitalized annually due to burns; treatments for burns can cost per year over $1 billion.

Among all accidents, burns are the second most common. Burns can be the result of radiation, fire, electricity, chemical, hot objects, hot fluids, and steam.

In the majority of cases, it becomes apparent that you’ve sustained a key burn. Thus, it is important to make a determination of the critical nature of any burn for proper treatment for burns.

Burns that are mild to moderate are typical. However, they can still produce excruciating pain.

Without much medical attention required, minor burns can heal. Alternatively, a catastrophic burn normally requires prompt treatment to diminish the likelihood of infection, and any occurrence of scarring.

Prior to any treating of a burn, it is crucial to understand the degree or level of the sustained injury.

In levels of first-, second-, and the third-degree intensities, burns are categorized. A burn that is minor, normally, can be treated by dousing the area first with cold water, while a burn that is third degree requires prompt healthcare attention.

The most typical form of burn injury are first-degree burns. They are produced via light scalding, when the skin is contacted briefly with steam, the son, or hot items.

Normally, a first-degree burn will appear swollen slightly, and in color, red, which may produce pain that is slight to minimal.

The burn normally has an effect on the top layer of the skin only; this can usually be treated with ointments and pain medications over-the-counter.

Typically, second-degree burns are no more than three inches in diameter, and can be treated often the same as a first-degree burn.

A second-degree burn, normally, will entail intense reddening with white blotches, and/or blistering.


Normally, the skin experiences critical pain and swells. Most burns that are first-degree and second-degree can be treated as a condition that is minor.

If the face, hands, buttocks, feet, or groin have been burnt, however, it is crucial to seek prompt healthcare to minimize complications, and any likelihood of an infection.
