When to Seek Treatment for a Burn
First-degree burns (which affect the outermost layer of skin) and second-degree burns (which affect the skin’s top layer and part of its middle layer) are considered minor and can typically be treated at home. These burns commonly produce pain, redness, dryness, swelling, and blisters. However, you should consult with a medical provider—like the ones at Jovive Health—if your burn:
- Causes severe pain
- Appears to be infected (signs of infection include fever and discharge)
- Is more than 3 inches wide
- Affects your face, hands, genitals, buttocks, feet, or a major joint
- Does not improve after 48 hours
Third-degree burns (which affect the skin’s outer and middle layers and sometimes its innermost layer) and fourth-degree burns (which affect all three layers of skin and sometimes underlying muscles and bones) always require emergency medical treatment. If your skin feels numb or appears deep red, brown, white, black, charred, or leathery, you should call 911 or go to the nearest hospital.
