Hi. I’m just looking for any advice on burn infections. One of my burns is very red. Is this healthy? I am also feeling really unwell at the minute and not sure if it’s just a coincidence? Thanks for your help.

is the burn area hot to the touch? If it is still red and hot to the touch it may be infected and you should seek some guidance from your GP… hope its on the mend.  Sorry only just seen your post.

Best wishes,
