Transcript of Burns of different degrees

third degree
Burns of different degrees
first degree burn
A first-degree burn is the least serious type of burn that you can suffer, and involves only the outermost layer of your skin, called your epidermis.

Your skin will likely be reddened and painful. It can also be swollen.

In general, if a first-degree burn does not cover a significant portion of your body, it can be treated at home.

A second-degree burn is one in which the second layer of your skin (called your dermis) is also burned. In this type of burn, your skin will be extremely red with a spotted or blotchy appearance, and you will probably have blisters in the area of the burn.

A second-degree burn typically causes severe pain and swelling.

If you suffer a small and localized second-degree burn - no more than a few inches in diameter - you might be able to treat it effectively at home. If the burned region is larger than this, or has occurred on your face, hands, feet, groin, buttocks, or a major joint, it is best to go to your doctor or local hospital for professional care.

A third-degree burn involves all layers of your skin, and possibly structures that are below your skin as well. Some areas of a third-degree burn are often charred black. You may experience severe pain, but if a nerve has been damaged by the burn, it is possible that you will feel little to no pain. All third-degree burns require immediate emergency medical care.
