How long does it take a third degree burn to heal after the dead tissue has been removed?

The doctor cut it an inch deep.

The longest time is about a month, but if you use silver nitrate 3 times a day it can heal in as little as one week. The area will determine if the doctor gives you that medication or not.

Recovery time for burns is a very lengthy, depending upon the severity of the burn. Healing time for everyone is different, but within 3-4 months you should notice a significant difference. Keep the area lubricated by using mineral oil or another bland oil to prevent cracking and drying.
