Understanding the Types of Burn Injuries
When a person is injured in an accident and suffers burns, this can lead to permanent scarring and extremely deep-rooted pain. Treatments which are required for burn injuries often require a specialist and can be very painful.
Burns are put into four categories depending on severity, as follows:
- First-degree burns: Reddened skin, superficial burns on the top layer of skin, and no sign of blisters, with only slight pain.
- Second-degree burns: Thickened skin with blisters on the surface and more significant pain.
- Third-degree burns: Severe thickening that feels almost like leather, white appearance of the skin, and severe pain.
- Fourth-degree burns: All of the symptoms of third-degree burns, but also with damage to bones and tendons.
