Depends how severe: the burn is. If it is truly superficial 1st degree burn just keep it protected with burn cream and gauze wrap for a few days. But if the urethra has been affected you must see a urologist to assess the damage. A deep burn in this area can cause a stricture of urine flow. Consider a HealthTap Consult with a picture of your injury. We can advise you if you need to go to ER or not.
