Hello Anonymous,

Because blisters have broken open, a bandage is needed. To further help prevent infection, apply a clean bandage whenever your bandage gets wet or soiled. If a bandage is stuck to a burn, soak it in warm water to make the bandage easier to remove. If available, use a nonstick dressing.

Superficial second-degree burns usually heal in about three weeks, as long as the wound is kept clean and protected. Deep second-degree burns may take longer than three weeks to heal.

Call to schedule a follow up appointment with your primary care physician, who can take a look at the burn, and guide you in further home care.

Wishing you a quick recovery,
