Why do you need to go to a hospital for 1st degree frostbite if you don't for a first degree heat burn and frostbite is essentially a cold burn?
You don't: Necessarily need to go to the hospital for first degree frost bite, "frost nip" It is the mildest form, most superficial, involving just the epidermis. I think a hospital visit is warranted if large body surface areas are involved, or if you aren't sure how severe it is. Telling the degree of cold injury can be hard to tell. BTW ,extensive first degree heat burns should be seen by a doctor also. ...Read more

I have a burn from a deep fryer with a lemon size blister, should I go to the emergency room, is there any way to speed healing, I am losing work?
Yes.: Hard to comment in this without seeing the burn. Unless you have experience with burns it is best to go the the er, especially if the burn is bigger than a quarter, most of the way around a finger/hand/arm, or if it doesn't hurt. If the burn is small and has none of the aforementioned features, and there is just scant blistering, wash it with soap daily + cover with antibiotic oint until healed. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

I'm 20 weeks pregnant and wanted to know if i could go to a spa and sit in a hot tub and steam room and get a massage.?
How hot & how long?: A baby inside a pregnant woman stays at normal temperature regardless of the shower or bath temperature (unless the woman intentionally uses abnormally hot water). If the woman stayed in a hot-tub or a sauna too long and raised her internal temperature above normal, there would be temporary stress on the baby until the mother's internal temperature dropped back down to normal. Massage is fine. ...Read more
In december last year during a routine medical check for employment found with ms. I would like to know if is ok to go to the beach or to have sauna.
Important issues: An MRI is not necessarily conclusive for ms, lesions can be seen with migraine, prior trauma, hypertension, diabetes, etc. Get this diagnosed and treated if appropriate. See a neurologist. If you do have ms, should be on a medication. Pts with ms are inordinately sensitive to heat exposure, which can cause pseudo-relapses with symptoms, and can enhance fatigue, but should not Prohibit you. ...Read more
In order to relieve the burn pain. Should i dress it like a normal 2nd degree burn with bactine and bandage gauze?
You need exam: 2nd degree burn can vary widely. Deep 2nd acts more like a 3rd, superficial 2nd acts more like a 1st. Treatment (at the least) would be cleansing frequently with soap/water, removing any dead skin/tissue, and coverage with antibiotic oint like silvadene (silver sulfadiazine). All of this can vary with size/location/depth. If the injury is bigger than a quarter, has inc. Redness, or is over a joint- get to a burn dr. ...Read more
There are probably: shades of grey on this question...."it depends." A first degree burn involves only the outer layer of the skin and may cause redness, swelling and pain; the skin is not interupted/broken. If the skin is not broken, I think you could swim in a well-maintained/probably chlorinated swimming pool; I wouldn't swim in a lake/ocean. If the skin is broken, stay out of the water to avoid infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Several answers: If you have been unconscious more than 1 minute, if you have a penetrating injury (scalp laceration), fluid or blood emanating from nose or ears, speech disturbance, sensory loss, imbalance, visual disturbance, weakness, or memory loss, you need to be checked as soon as possible. Diabetics are more likely to complications but the same general rules apply. ...Read more
