When you visit the doctor with a burn injury, they will conduct a physical examination of the affected area. They will inspect your burnt skin and determine the total percentage, degree and the severity of damage of the impacted area. The critical areas of burn include your face, eyes, ears, legs, arms, feet and groin. The other areas of body will also be inspected to assess whether the burn has affected the rest of your body.
Following the physical examination, the doctor may also further tests and diagnostic procedures, including lab tests or X-rays.
