How Not to Treat Burns

  • Don't pierce or open blisters. Doing so leaves the skin vulnerable to infection.

  • Don't peel off burned dead skin. Doing so leaves the skin underneath vulnerable to infections and scarring.

  • Don't apply butter, antiseptic creams or other ointments. These can cause infections, increase pain and may complicate the treatment given by medical professionals.
