Should a mild chemical burn be brought to the hospital?

If a mild chemical burn received proper treatment and the substance that caused it has been identified, the burn may not need to be brought to the hospital. However, a healthcare provider should still be notified in case they wish to treat it themselves. Even if the burn appears minor, it can’t hurt to get it checked out. If the chemical burn shows any signs of infection, like swelling, oozing pus, redness, or an onset of fever, it should be brought to your healthcare provider’s attention.
