See a Cosmetic Dermatologist for Wound Care

I recommend not putting lemon juice on your burn and getting a formal evaluation with a cosmetic dermatologist for wound care to prevent scarring. I recommend silicone gel with growth factors. Any subsequent scarring can be improved with lasers and microneedling/prp. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
