Minor burns and scalds are a part of everyday life, whether they be from dry heat such as an iron, hair straighteners, grill or BBQ or from liquid sources such as very hot water or steam.
The most important thing to do, if you receive a minor burn or scald, is to cool the area immediately with cool or tepid water. Contrary to popular belief you must avoid ice, iced water, creams and greasy substances as these can further damage the skin. It is critical that you cool the area to reduce pain and the risk of long-term scarring.
N.B: Deep or large burns, or burns to the face, hands, feet or across joints must always be checked by a doctor and may require hospital treatment. For chemical burns and electrical burns we also recommend that you seek immediate medical attention, visit your nearest A&E department or call 999 for advice.
