Anaheim, CA – Burns Research Inc. has recently launched their www.how-to-treat-a-burn.com website in an effort to teach the general public on the proper way to treat a burn. It is quite common for people to get some sort of burn in one way or another, and it can be difficult to know what to do in order to make sure that it does not blister and become more painful. Proper treatment of a burn is crucial in helping to minimize the amount of pain and reduce the chance of scarring.
There are several stages of burns with the most common that are seen in the household being first degree burns, but the Burns Research Inc website will have a guide on how to treat everything up to a third degree burn. While first degree burns can be treated in the home without more medical attention with the exception of infection, third degree burns need to be looked at by a medical professional. The treatments on the website for the third degree burns are only set to assist the individual until they are able to get to the hospital and seek medical attention.
It can be quite difficult to know how to react when a person receives a burn. Natural instinct will be to begin to rub at the burned area, but the first step in treating the burn should be to place the burned area under running cold water. Not only will the cold water help to reduce the amount of pain, but it will also help decrease some of the redness and swelling that may have appeared. The minor burns like first degree should not take long to heal, and should be almost completely gone within a week. If the burn is still painful after the first couple of days it is important to seek medical attention for the burn may be more severe or there is a small chance of infection.
Burns can be quite severe and the person burned will not always be able to take care of themselves, so it is important for everyone to know how to properly take care of a burn. If the burn appears to be more severe than a minor burn it is important to remove any obstruction, such as clothing, if possible and then apply a cool clean compress that will cover the burn. Immediately seek the assistance of a medical professional. More information can be learned at the new online resource http://www.How-to-Treat-a-Burn.com.
