Treatment and First Aid for Burns and Sunburn

Burns can be generally categorized as one of three types. First degree, second degree and third degree.

First degree burns often come from light contact with hot appliances, fire, a spark or more commonly from sunburn. Damage is restricted to the first and possibly second layers of the skin - the epidermis and dermis, respectively and will be accompanied by redness, slight and pain and sensitivity to touching.

Second degree burns often result in blistering and peeling. Dermis layer damage can be extensive and often damage extends beyond epidermis. Immediate treatment is necessary to avoid extensive blistering. Second degree burns are painful and involve blistering, extensive redness and pain and may included light charring - similar to burned skin from lighting a match during burning of the sulfur.

Third degree burns extend to the subcutaneous (hypodermis) layer and permanent or semi-permanent skin damage and scarring can occur. Upper levels of tissue are burned noticeably.

First Aid For Burns

First and Second Degree Burns:
  • Run cool water over the affected area to reduce swelling and pain
  • Use a cool, sterile compress to cover the burned skin
  • Do not apply pressure or use an adhesive bandage
  • Keep the area elevated
  • Maintain hydration. Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Use creams or ointments to relieve pain and reduce swelling; second degree burns should be given time to watch for open wounds. Do not immediately apply ointments for open burns.
Third Degree Burns:
  • Seek medical attention immediately
  • Do not remove burned clothing
  • Watch the victim for shock or loss of breathing
