Burn injuries may occur at home, on the job, or during daily activities. When a burn happens, immediate medical attention may be necessary based on the severity. Many burns can be very serious or even life-threatening, some leaving permanent scaring or lifetime impairments. Serious types of burns can be initiated from several causes.
Some of these causes include:
- Food, grease or some sort of hot liquid
- Automobile Accidents
- Kitchen Appliances
Degrees of burns:
- First degree: Red skin, no blisters
- Second degree: Blisters and thickened skin. May require skin grafting for the best healing if it is full thickness of the skin
- Third degree: Skin turns a white color and the affected area has an overall thickening
