Can California Urgent Care Centers Help if I Have Been Burned?

Burns can be complicated and painful injuries especially if they are not properly treated. The type of treatment you will need will depend on the type of burn sustained. Here is a short list of burn types and how to identify them.

Burn Degree Classifications

There are four classifications of burn degree. The deepness and severity of the burn’s penetration determines the burn’s classification.

  • First-degree burns. These burns are usually minor and superficial. They involve the outer layer of skin (epidermis). This type of burn is usually dry, red and painful. Normally there are no blisters with this class of burn.
  • Second-degree burns. These burns involve the epidermis and the dermis (the next layer of skin). In addition to being red, swollen and painful, there may be blistering with these burns.
  • Third-degree burns. These go down to the deepest layer of skin, the subcutaneous tissue. Burns this severe destroy the epidermis and dermis. These wounds often appear white or blackened as though covered in char.
  • Fourth-degree burns. These burns go through all the layers of skin tissue down to the dipper tissues such as muscle and bone. There is often nerve damage with these wounds so there is often no feeling in the burned area.

What Should I Do if I Sustain a Burn?

Our medical team is ready to handle minor burns such as first and second degrees. We can also handle some third-degree burns smaller than two inches. If you have sustained a third-degree burn larger than two inches, or you have sustained a fourth-degree burn, please dial 9-1-1 and visit the emergency room.
