The product is suitable for superficial, minor burns. AKUTOL hydrogel is not a means for the first treatment in case of burns! Cool the wound immediately under lukewarm running water and continue cooling for approximately twenty minutes. Cooling down should be done as soon as possible, as its beneficial effect gradually decreases and disappears after about 30 minutes. To avoid hypothermia, the use of cold water is not recommended, especially if burn covers a large area.
