How to Care for Burns?

If the affected area is extensive and the burn is deep into the skin, it should be cared for by trained medical professionals to prevent infection and further damage. If the burn is manageable, you should apply antibiotic ointment on it and cover it with clean dressing or bandage. Keep the wound away from water and change the dressing or bandage as needed. If there are signs of infection or if the pain worsens, you should seek medical help as soon as possible.
