Understanding Varying Burn Degrees
There are several different degrees of burns that an individual may suffer from. These range depending on the severity and damage involved.
- In a first degree burn, a person’s outer layer of skin may be damaged, with redness and swelling surrounding the area.
- In a second degree burn, the epidermis may be burned through, with the second layer having blisters, swelling, and severe pain.
- A third-degree burn is often considered one of the worst, resulting in damage all the way to the underlying tissue. This severity of burn can cause damage to tendons, muscle tissue, and even bones.
Depending on the severity, you may suffer serious complications such as scarring, infection, organ damage, nerve damage, and other issues. In addition to burn injuries, victims may suffer medical complications due to smoke inhalation.
