Although your Mesa, AZ burn is one of the thousands that occur every year in the United States, knowing this does not make your burn injury any easier to endure.
Even the most minor burn causes pain and discomfort, requiring topical treatments and bandaging to minimize both the sensation as well as exposure, which can further complicate the injury. The pain from a moderate to severe burn can be unbearable, requiring pain medication, as well as surgery. Some burn injuries lead to permanent disfigurement or even death.
