Can I go swimming with a first degree burn?
I'm not exactly sure if swimming will promote scarring, especially because the burns are on my face. (don't ask) I need an answer for both chlorinated and salted pools. It would help if someone were to post an answer which also includes a way to prevent scarring and a way to heal it faster. I thank you very much.

Chlorine is in pools because it is clean and kills germs. So It actually may help your burn. But with salt, it may burn or sting your burn but also may help the healing process. Neosporin will help prevent scars if you apply it maybe 3-4 times a day until it heals.


B H
A first degree burn will be red because the injured tissues need increased blood flow to promote healing. The new skin will be especially sensitive to things like sunlight and chemical irritants. So you should wear a hat, avoid sun exposure, or use a high SPF sun block (like SPF 45 or better).

As for swimming, if the pool water stings and the area of the burn becomes even more reddened, then you may be experiencing some irritation. You may want to wait until the skin returns to its normal pink (or brown) color.
