Burns and Sunburns
A burn occurs when heat, chemicals, sunlight, electricity or radiation damages skin tissue. Most burns happen accidentally. There are different degrees of burns. Your healthcare provider determines the seriousness (degree) of a burn based on the depth of the burn and the amount of affected skin. Burns can be painful. Left untreated, a burn can lead to infection.
A sunburn is inflamed, painful skin that feels hot to the touch. It often appears within a few hours of being in the sun too long. If you have a bad sunburn, we can treat you!
