Don't go to the emergency room, you could make somebody with a broken leg or internal injuries wait because the er staff were too busy looking at your burn. I had the same thing happen to me when I was broiling fish in a 550 degree oven, just treat it like any other injury, but be especially careful to watch out for infection, which can easily happen with burns. If you are really worried then schedule a doctor's appointment, I can tell you after personal experience with both that you will probably see the doctor before you see the emergency room staff.
