Treating Minor Burns at Home

Burn injuries are a common problem. Whether you touched a hot pan or a curling iron, you may suffer from a mild (first degree) burn. While there are remedies for treating first and second degree burns at home, more serious burns may require emergency medical care.

If you have been the victim of another person's negligence and suffered a burn injury, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your losses.

Home Remedies

If you suffer from a minor burn injury, there are several ways to reduce pain and promote healing. The first things you should do is run the affected area under cold water for several minutes. If you do not cool off the affected area, your skin may continue burning long after the heat source has been removed.

Following the ice, you may want to apply a gel or ointment that can help soothe the pain of your injury. Popular home remedies for burns include:

  • Aloe Vera – One of the most common burn remedies
  • Calendula oil – A first aid oil that is used for minor cuts, bites, and burns
  • Lavender oil – A soothing oil used to relieve itching, pain, and burns
  • Yellow mustard – Although an unsuspecting remedy, many people claim that yellow mustard reduces the pain of a burn.

It is important to note that major burns cannot be safely treated at home. If you are suffering from a serious burn that covers a large portion of your body, seek emergency medical assistance.
