    Do you know how to treat burn? ie you have the knowledge to treat it properly? if not then an visit to the ER is in order.

    In the mean time, do not ice it or put any cream on it, and do not break the blister that will form.

    Any burn wider than 1 inch or longer than 3 inches or encircles a limb should be seen by an medical professional.

    Yes. Go to the hospital and have your wounds professionally cleaned and bandaged.
