Learn how to treat a first-degree burn in this first aid video from Howcast with Nurse Mary.


Burns are serious business. You really want to get medical help to look them over, evaluate them, and determine what degree they are. If it's more than just a little burn blister, you're going to want to keep it cool, keep it wet, and go see your doctor right away. The bottom line is, burns are bad business. Burns can be more severe than you'd think just by looking at them, and there are things that you cannot do at home that you need medical expertise for. With a burn, you're going to want to cool it off under cold water. Loosely wrap it with bandages that are with cool water, keep it wet, keep it cool, and go see your doctor.
