Afraid to go to Doctor for Treatment of Self-inflicted Injury
I have a self-inflicted burn that is not healing even though it has been over 3 weeks. I am afraid that the burn might be infected, but I am afraid to go to the local walk-in clinic/ urgent care for treatment because the burn is obviously self-inflicted and is in close proximity to many other self-harm scars. If I go for treatment and the doctor sees that I've been self-harming, can I be involuntarily hospitalized? In case it is relevant, I live in the USA.
Any advice is appreciated!
