Burn injuries are normally differentiated into three different categories:
- First degree burns
- Second degree burns
- Third degree burns
First degree burns – The least serious burns are classified as first degree burns. They only affect the top layer of skin causing redness and minor pain for a short while. There is normally no scarring or blistering.
Second degree burns – Second degree burns usually affect deeper layers of skin than first degree burns and are therefore normally more painful. Blistering is typical with second degree burns and can lead to fluid loss. Second degree burns can have a ‘wet’ look.
Third degree burns – Third degree burns are the most serious types of burns which can completely burn away the skin and affect the muscles of the body. Third degree burns can be fatal if they affect a large enough area of the body. Scarring is typical for third degree burns and victims frequently need skin grafts as treatment for their injuries.
