Yes, this is very common. Anytime you get a burn that is of any degree you could get blisters. You could pop them or just let them be.

Yes, a burn can cause water blisters. This is a second degree burn and, depending on the size of the blistered area, it can be serious and prone to infection. These types of burns do not usually scar. Do not break the blisters and keep the area clean and covered.

Yes, any burn can cause fluid formation and accumulation in the form of blisters after 1-2 days. If these blisters are infected they need special medicines.

Yes, burns cause blisters that look like water blisters. If possible, do not break the blisters. If they are broken, keep the area covered with ointment and a bandage. Watch for infection.

Answer by  soapjunkie (581)

Yes. In fact, burns are most likely the second frequent cause of water blisters. See your doctor for further care. Depending on what degree of burn it is either first, second, or third treatment requires bandaging, monitoring of the skin for any changes, such as infection, oozing, tenderness, or pain, and also the possible use of a topical antibiotic.
