Burn prevention and treatment tips

You can look to the specialists at Medical City Plano's Burn & Reconstructive Center and Level 1 Trauma Center for expert treatment of burns and traumatic injuries. For the best possible outcome immediately following a burn injury, follow these tips from our experts:

What to do

  • Do run cool water over the burn
  • Do use a moisturizing lotion, such as aloe vera
  • Do wrap burned areas with dry, clean cloths
  • Do take over-the-counter pain relievers
  • Do call 911 for severe burns and serious accidents or go to the nearest ER for evaluation

What not to do

  • Don't panic
  • Don't put ice or ice water on a burn—you can further damage tissue
  • Don't use homemade salves or ointments
  • Don’t remove clothing that is stuck to a burn

Burns range from first to third degree and differ in terms of severity and appearance. Here's how to tell the severity of your burn:

  • First degree–Skin is red and painful, such as with a minor sunburn
  • Second degree–Red, blistered, swollen and painful
  • Third degree–Deep, whitish color, no pain
