To treat a burn, remove any clothing from the area (but not if it’s stuck), cool it with water for 10-30 minutes, and cover with cling film. Seek medical attention if necessary.

  • Treatment of burns @ Bupa

    Excerpt: For burns caused by heat, keep cooling the burn with cool or tepid water for between 10 and 30 minutes or until medical help is available. Don’t use iced water. Carefully remove any restrictive clothing or jewellery that isn’t stuck to the burn. Next, cover the burn using cling film – layer this on to the burn rather than wrapping it around a limb, for example. If you have a burn on your hand, use a clean, clear plastic bag. Don’t use wet dressings or creams.
