Treatment for Burns

Terrasil Infection Protection Wound Care Ointment

Any burn that is beyond minor should receive medical attention. Burns are particularly susceptible to further damage and infection. Treatment for a burn is dependant on the depth, severity, and cause.

The first step for treating a less severe thermal burn is to run cool tap water over the skin for ten minutes, then cover will a slightly damp, cool compress. The use of ice, directly against burned skin, is not recommended and will likely cause further damage. The skin should be cleaned with mild soap. Acetaminophen or ibuprofen can be taken orally to ease pain. A burn on the very surface of the skin will not need a bandage or wrap.

A burn may appear less severe at first, but then get worse over a few hours or the next day. Always seek medical attention if treatment seems overwhelming.

Burns on the face or over a large portion of the body may require skin grafts. With a skin graft the doctor takes a portion of healthy skin from another location on the body to replace damaged skin.

Treatment for severe burns may involve surgery, physical therapy, rehabilitation, or lifelong assisted care.
