Burn - April 26th 2017, 05:07 PM

I know I have said I burned myself before but it turns out I really didn't. Anyways today I have burned myself twice one burn I did about 20 minutes ago and it still hurts like hell. There is a blister on it. Do I need to get it checked out. Or is this normal. Also is this a second degree burn or third?

Hey there, Essa.

First off, as you know we cannot offer a professional view, only information based on our personal knowledge; and based on that, I know that blisters are the first sign of a second-degree burn. As the epidermis is destroyed, it begins to separate from the dermis. And fluid builds beneath it, causing blisters. However, it isn't always easily possible to determine second-degree burns to third-degree burns as blisters are included with both of those. Although, not always, but sometimes one will experience loss of feeling due to nerve damage caused by a third-degree burn.

Applying Aloe Vera lotion or gel may help sooth it, as well as holding the area of your burn under running cold water for 10 or so minutes for relief. Even though it may be temping, try not to pick at the blister because if it bursts then there's a more significant chance for infection to occur. But if it does burst, even if on its own, put antibiotic ointment on it and cover it.

If you notice increased pain, swelling, redness and other signs of infection, or are just in pain then please do see a doctor. It might be best to see a doctor regardless so they can determine the severity of the burn to determine if any further medical attention is needed.

I hope it feels better soon. Take care, Essa, and let us know how you are doing, okay?
