What is the best treatment for a second degree burn?

Keep clean

Antibiotic
Second degree burns are where the skin blisters and peels. It will heal in less than 2 weeks if just kept clean by washing and covering with local antibiotics such as bacitracin ointment.

Dr. Michael Miller answered:

What treatment would be recommended for a second degree burn that is has scarred but there is no numbness to the area and it feels fine just looks bad?

Slow improvement

Numbness_
A scar forms when there is healing of an injury to the tissues. Remember that with almost all wounds, healing continues for months and months as we change the stress on the tissues. A scar forms as a result and may have many different appearances and colors. Any dark coloration may fade over time but the tissues NEVER are the same and so some scarring will always be there.

Should i pop the blisters from second degree burn?

Great Question

Burns
Not even all burn units agree on this. However, I would suggest that YOU don't pop it, but have it seen by an appropriate specialist.

Please answer me. Is a burn with blisters count as a second degree burn?

Yes, it can be

Toe_pain
Yes, it can be. Usually a deeper burn will not blister as all the skin elements are burnt at the site of injury and cannot respond to form a blister.

What kind of antibiotic would fight infection of a second degree burn. I have tetracycline. The blisters broke in a few days and pus is light green.

Seek help

Antibiotic
I would insist that you go to the ER, a burn center, or a plastic surgeon. I do not use the term 'second degree' anymore. Burns are either deep, requiring surgery, or superficial, no surgery needed. Sometimes there are 'indeterminate' burns. Seek help to make sure it is not 'deep' and also that it is not infected (some discharge is normal though-but only a doctor will be able to tell )

Dr. Michael Kulick answered:

2nd degree burn infected, treatment?

Can happen

Sunburn
This does not happen often but can be treated with topical medications - polysporin, bacitracin etc. Cleaning the skin is important. It is also smart to see a doctor if the skin is red and painful.
