How to Treat a First-Degree Burn | First Aid Training

Burns are serious business. You really want to get medical help to look
them over, evaluate them, and determine what degree they are. If it’s more than just a little burn blister,
you’re going to want to keep it cool, keep it wet, and go see your doctor right away. The bottom line is, burns are bad business. Burns can be more severe than you’d think
just by looking at them, and there are things that you cannot do at home that you need medical
expertise for. With a burn, you’re going to want to cool
it off under cold water. Loosely wrap it with bandages that are with
cool water, keep it wet, keep it cool, and go see your doctor.

  1. fucking stupid. instead of knowing how to treat a burn, i just know to go see a doctor (which i knew anyway, and isn't always necessary)

  2. I've burned my self plenty of times and to tell u the truth u don't need to see a doctor just put aloe on it to make it cool down or just let it burn a little in the night and in the morning the burning will be gone. It might still leave a little mark but it will go away in no time 🙂
