Treating Minor Burns
Minor skin burns may not require a physician’s attention, but they do hurt and can create great discomfort. Additionally, healing of even the most minor burns can be challenging.
Cleaning any wound is the first step of the healing process as it effectively clears away germs that can cause skin infections. Using an antimicrobial scrub, soap, or wash is essential to removing potential infection-causing bacteria.
Wounds should be dried thoroughly after washing and a sterile tool should be used to dry them. Once a burn wound is thoroughly clean and dried, treatment can begin.
There are many burn sprays and creams that simultaneously treat the burn wound while creating a protective barrier to keep radicals from causing infection. If using a topical spray, cream, or ointment, gauze makes a great protective covering, keeping topicals in place and adding additional protection to the burn site.
2nd Skin Moist Burn Pads are specifically designed to heal and protect burns. Eliminating the need for several burn care tools, these pads are made with 95% water to hydrate and heal burns. Additionally, they include properties that soothe and cool burn wounds, relieving discomfort and pain. They are easily applied, but also require gauze wrap or medical tape to keep it secured over the wound. They also require daily changing, which is common for any effective burn treatment.
