Small area thermal burns (usually second degree) are generally treated as follows:
- Rinse the wound under flowing tap water, cut off the clothes around the wound surface with scissors under cold water for at least 15 minutes, take off the clothes around the wound surface, slowly take off the clothes around the wound surface, soak in cold water for 30 minutes, and use silver-containing burn cream.
In fact, whether it is burns from hot bodies or burns from open flames, this kind of skin damage affected by heat is almost the same for skin.
- The water temperature for rinsing and soaking should not be lower than 5 degrees Celsius. It is best not to apply ice at room temperature. Do not use toothpaste, sesame oil, vinegar and other articles. Do not pick out blisters without authorization.
If the clothes on the wound surface are avulsed, there is no need to take them off.
Instructions for medical treatment
Scalds caused by hydrothermal solution can be called second-degree burns if blisters appear. Second-degree burns are recommended to be treated in a hospital.
