REQUIRE IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ATTENTION even if the burn seems to be minor! It is essential to choose the right treatment tactics.

First aid for a minor burn

1. Immediately cool the injured area for a minimum of 20 minutes using cool running water from a tap or shower.
2. After cooling the injured area for up to 20 minutes, apply a sterile dressing.
3. Remove tight items, such as rings, from the burned area. Be gentle.
4. Avoid breaking blisters.
