Did You Know?
First-degree burns involve the upper layer of the skin called the epidermis. These burns manifest pain and redness that blanches when pressure is applied. They do not blister and heal within several days, with minimal or no systemic response aside from pain. First-degree burns are usually caused by sun exposure or mild scalds.
Second-degree or partial-thickness burns involve the epidermis and next, deeper layer of skin called the dermis. These burns are very painful and blister formation is common. Blanching upon pressure and pain is intact. They heal in two to three weeks with minimal scarring. Scalds, flash burns, or contact with hot objects usually cause superficial second-degree burns.
Deep second-degree burns are caused by open flame, scalds, or hot grease. They appear waxy white with red elements. Healing can take up to six weeks, with scarring.
Third-degree or full-thickness burns involve the entire epidermis and dermis, and the fatty tissue underneath. These burns do not heal spontaneously and require skin grafting. They appear white, tan, gray, brown, or red, with vessels often seen. The burn wound is leathery and no pain is felt when the wound is touched.
