    No, they don't make the burns worse. Oily or greasy substances make the burn worse because they trap the heat. 2nd skin burn pads are not oily or greasy and they cool the burn.

    You can use them on 1st degree burns certainly; for 2nd degree I would look at the individual burn (there are two categories of 2nd degree burns and I would not use these pads on the worse category).
