Treatment modalities vary according to the degree, level, cause of the burn, the affected area, the age and medical history of the person.
After the necessary interventions are made for the general condition of the person immediately after the burn, local wound care, removal of dead tissues, if any, and repair of wounds with low/non-healing potential with skin patches or flaps are treatment modalities. Physiotherapy is recommended for the preservation of organ function after burns of certain specific areas.
