What are the treatments for Burns Lower Extremities?

Burns can be devastating, but they are also very manageable in most cases. There are many treatments for burns, including:

Ice

Ice is often the first line of defense against burns. It works by constricting blood vessels in the skin and preventing heat from escaping and entering the tissue, which reduces swelling and decreases pain. Ice can be applied directly to the burn or wrapped in a towel first.

Painkillers

Painkillers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Advil) can help manage pain until other treatments take effect. Make sure to ask your doctor about what painkillers are safe for you to take if you have any underlying health conditions or allergies!

Antibiotics

If a burn has caused an infection, antibiotics may be necessary to prevent infection from spreading further into your body. Make sure to ask your doctor about whom antibiotics are safe for you if you have any underlying health conditions or allergies!
