Management Of Painful Burns?
I want to ask, I have grade 1 burns. It’s been 3 days, but it still hurts … Thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Burns consist of several levels. First-degree burns only affect the epidermis or the outer layer of skin. Clinically, the sign is a skin that looks red, dry, and feels painful. For example, burns caused by sunlight. This first-degree burn is not too worrisome and can heal on its own. While the 2nd and 3rd degree burns generally begin to show signs of blisters or blisters because it involves a deeper layer of skin. Pain caused by level 1 burns can last for 3-7 days depending on the location, area, and treatment provided
In first-degree burns, it can be treated with skin care products, such as crocodile creams, antibiotic ointments, and painkillers. While second-degree burns can be treated with antibiotic creams, ointments, and medications prescribed by doctors. In addition, you are also advised not to bathe using warm water, but instead to use plain water to help lift heat from the skin.
Don't use ice, toothpaste, butter, eggs, etc. because it is scientifically proven to be ineffective and can worsen the burn lesion.
If your complaint does not improve or you are worried, you should check with your skin specialist for further examination and treatment related to your condition.
So much information from me, hopefully it helps
