Professional Treatment for Minor Burns in Saline, MI
The sun, hot surfaces, scalding liquids, and chemical cleaners are all common causes of minor to moderate burns. If you are concerned that your burn might need immediate medical attention and can’t get an appointment with your primary care doctor, Springfield Urgent Care can help. Our Saline, Michigan, clinic is open seven days a week, and we provide minor burn treatment for patients of all ages. We strive to keep our rates low and wait times short so you can get the care and pain relief you need quickly.
When to Seek Burn Treatment
Our medical practitioners can treat minor to moderate burns. Burn severity is measured in degrees. A minor (first-degree) burn affects the top layer of the skin, and a moderate (second-degree) burn affects the second layer of the skin, causing blisters. Seek burn treatment if you experience the following symptoms:
- Pain and redness
- Oozing, which may indicate infection
- Sunburn lasting over a week
Anyone with a burn that doesn’t heal should come in for an evaluation. However, infants, toddlers, and seniors have a higher risk of complications from burns and should visit a medical professional immediately after injury. This is especially critical if the person develops a fever.
If you think you may have a third- or fourth-degree burn (which affects the underlying muscles, nerves, and tendons), you should go to the emergency room or call 911.
