First- & Second-Degree Burn Care at MedPost
If you have a skin burn, from cooking or chemicals, it’s important that you know when to get professional medical care. Burns range in severity from first degree to third degree, and treatment varies for each type.
1.First-Degree Burns –– This is the least serious burn in which only the outer layer of skin is burned. First-degree burns can be caused by a sunburn, scalding your skin with hot liquid or by coming in contact with electricity. Although some first-degree burns can be treated at home, if the affected area shows any signs of infection or becomes swollen or painful, you should come in to MedPost. Also, if your child is burned, we suggest taking them immediately to a MedPost location for professional medical treatment.
2.Second-Degree Burns –– A second-degree burn occurs when the skin has been burned through the first and second layers. This type of burn is very painful and causes swelling, redness and blisters. A second-degree burn requires immediate medical attention.
3.Third-Degree Burns –– When a burn affects the outer layer of skin, as well as deeper skin layers and the organs below the skin, it is classified as a third-degree burn. In this case, the skin will appear to be black and white and charred. Even though this burn may have less pain (because of the nerve damage), it is crucial that you go to an emergency department as soon as possible.
