Types of Burns

Although burns can be fatal, many burn injuries can heal completely with time and treatment. Burn injuries are classifield into three different categories:

First degree burns:
Burns in which just the first layer of skin is affected. The skin is reddened and normally heals in approximately one week. First degree burns can still be extremely painful.

Second degree burns:
Burns that affect both the first and second layer of skin. The skin appears moist and will often blister with a second degree burn. Pain is classified as severe for these types of burn injuries.

Third degree burns:
Burns that affect all layers of skin and even damage the tissue underneath the skin. Skin is white or black and appears dry. Third degree burns always lead to permanent scarring. Pain is classified as extreme for anyone suffering a third degree burn.

There are several different ways a person can be burned including:

    * Contact with fire, hot liquids, steam, etc.
      (classified as thermal burns)
    * Contact with nuclear radiation or ultraviolet light
      (radiation burns)
    * Contact with acid or alkali (light burns)
