Types and Degrees of Burns
Before attempting to use a first aid burn kit, you first need to identify the degree of the burn. First and second-degree burns can usually be self-treated with the right burn kit supplies. Third-degree burns almost always require immediate medical attention.
- First-degree burns These burns are due to over exposure to the sun or contact with hot objects or fluids. The skin is painful and red, but not broken or blistered. To treat a first-degree burn, run the burn under cool water then apply a burn cream. A loose gauze dressing can be applied to keep the burn covered. First degree burns usually do not require a dressing after 48 hours.
- Second-degree burns Second-degree burns usually have blisters and are very tender to touch. To treat a second-degree burn, carefully clean with water, pat dry and apply a burn cream. You can use a loose Non-adherent gauze dressings to cover the injured area each day. Do not break blisters as they help to prevent against infection. Prescription burn dressings can be applied to help cover and heal the area. Over-the-counter pain relievers can be used, but we recommend seeing a medical professional for severe, persistent pain.
- Third-degree burns Third-degree burns may be blanched white or charred. In many cases, third-degree burns may not be painful because of nerve damage. Never attempt to self-treat a third-degree burn. Third degree burns and facial burns should be managed by a physician immediately.
