Minor electrical burns can be treated with a burn cream and a bandage. More serious electrical burns may have a variety of treatment options, depending on the severity. Antibiotic creams may be used in order to prevent infection. Elevation of the burned area to prevent swelling may also be necessary. In serious cases where the skin won't heal properly, skin grafts may be used. Severe cases usually require fluids, as dehydration can be an issue, and surgery. Physical and occupational therapy are often needed as well.
