Tips on Treating a Burn
How to Treat a Burn
- You and your family are exposed to burn risks every day. Between curling irons, hot coffee, ironing clothes and cooking in the kitchen, burns are a very real possibility.
- First Aid for Burns
- If you or a family member suffers a burn, there are some immediate steps you can take to ensure proper care is received. First, treat every burn like a major burn until you can determine otherwise. You should calm and reassure the person who has been burned. Next you’ll want to address the following:
- Remove Clothing and Accessories
- Remove any clothing or tightly fitting accessories like wedding rings from the areas around the burn. If clothing is stuck in the burn, do not attempt to remove it.
- Cool the Burn
- If possible, run the burn under cool, not cold, water for 10 to 15 minutes. If this not possible, apply a cool, clean wet cloth to the burn. Do NOT use ice.
- Assess the Burn
- You should assess the burn to determine if it is superficial or more severe. You may be able to treat a superficial burn at home, but a more sever burn will require medical treatment.
