  3. Care Guidelines • First-degree burns can be treated as minor unless they cover large areas of the body • Second-degree burns can be treated also as minor if the burn is no bigger than 2-3 in in diameter • If a second-degree burn involves the eyes, face, feet or a major joint, seek medical attention immediately (x6000) • For more serious burns, seek medical attention immediately (x6000)

  4. First Aid for Minor Burns • Cool the burn with running water or a cold damp cloth • Cover the burn with a sterile gauze or a clean cloth • Take a pain reliever, like acetaminophen • Once the burn is completely cooled you can use a moisturizer to prevent drying and to make the area more comfortable

  5. Don’ts • Do not use ice, since this may result in more damage • Do not use butter, grease, oils or ointments • Do not use a fluffy cloth such as a towel or blanket • Do not break or pop blisters, as this may result in an infection
