Depends upon degree: Check out http://familydoctor.org/familydoctor/en/prevention-wellness/staying-healthy/first-aid/first-aid-burns.html. 1st degree burns are just red and heal in several days. 2nd degree burns are typically thicker burns w/blistering that take several weeks to heal. 3rd degree burns are full thickness injuries and take much longer than that.
