To prevent further tissue damage, burns require immediate attention—keepthe minor burn in cold, but not icy, water for 15 minutes. Any serious burn should receive emergency attention from a physician. Once the burn has been cooled down and cleaned, apply a thin layer of ointment to keep it moisturized, and protect the skin with a sterile gauze bandage. If blisters appear, do not break them.
