In brief: Second-degree burns

... Will heal on their own, given good wound care and good nutrition.
Burns on the face should be gooped up with antibiotic ointment several times a day; no dressings are necessary. Burn wounds elsewhere can have antibiotic ointment or silver sulfadiazine (silvadene) applied and then dressed with dressing changes daily in conjunction with a bath/shower.
