Types of Burns:

While only a doctor can correctly asses your degree of burn, here is a brief overview of the various degrees of burns:

First Degree Burns

First degree burns are the most common type of burns involving only the top layer of skin or epidermis. These can occur from a sudden brief blast of heat or mild sunburn. The skin appears red and swollen but does not blister.

Second Degree Burns

Second degree burns occur when the damage reaches past the epidermis to the second layer of skin called the dermis. Superficial second degree burns reach only the outermost part of the dermis and usually appear red and blotchy with blisters. Deep second degree burns penetrate more deeply into the layers of the dermis. These painful burns are more at risk for infection and require longer healing times.

Third Degree Burns

When the first and second layers of skin are completely destroyed and the burn now reaches into the subcutaneous or third layer of skin, a third degree burn has occurred. These types of burns often look white and leather like. Pain is not often felt due to the amount of nerve cells damaged in these types of burns.
