Minor Burn Treatment Available from Experienced Physicians in Cape May, NJ
Quick and appropriate burn treatment is essential to minimizing damage to the skin and, in more severe cases, the tissue beneath. Sometimes it can be tricky to determine which burns need which type of treatment. As a general rule, minor sunburns and scalds can be treated at home, but more severe burns require a call to 9-1-1 for immediate medical attention. Severe burns can include burns over large portions of the body regardless of severity, electrical burns, and chemical burns. Those situations require emergency onsite burn treatment or care at the nearest hospital emergency room. When it comes to burns that fall between those two extremes, Cape Regional Urgent Care is here to help people in Cape May, New Jersey.
Our friendly staff includes experienced physicians who know how to administer effective burn treatment. Typically, this process will include examining the burn, recommending nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to reduce pain and/or antihistamines to reduce itching, as well as treating the burn with a topical antibiotic. Depending on the type of burn, our physicians may also dress the area with bandages to aid healing.
In addition, our burn treatment is administered in the most convenient way possible for residents and visitors to Cape May, NJ. We make receiving urgent care easy by:
