More serious burns, or those which produce severe blisters or blacken the skin, should be treated by a doctor immediately. Professional medical attention will prevent scarring, infection, and other serious complications.
Extremely severe, or third-degree burns, may be treated by skin grafts, surgery, or other forms of intense medical treatment. These procedures are costly, painful, and traumatic for the sufferer. They may also leave the victim permanently scarred from the burn incident.
Please note, if you have any questions about treating burns or would like more information please contact your doctor or other medical professionals.
