Visit an Emergency Room Instead of Urgent Care Clinic : Burns and Seizures

While treating burns and seizures is similar, there are still some key differences that you’ll want to know about. When it comes to burns, you have both electrical and chemical burns. Electrical burns include touching an exposed power outlet or being exposed to a surge of electricity that has been released from something like a broken appliance or device. Chemical burns occur when your skin is exposed to something such as boiling water, acid or even gasoline. The symptoms of these types of burns can be different from each other, with chemical burns causing issues like swelling and infection while electrical burn symptoms include numbness or tingling in affected areas.
