Burns are one of the most common household injuries. Burns are characterized by severe skin damage due to some hazardous chemical, fire or boiling liquid. The skin damage due to burns may cause the affected skin cells to die. The burns may be of following types
- First degree burns: red, non blistered skin
- Second-degree burns: blisters and thickening of the skin
- Third-degree burns: widespread thickness with a white, leathery appearance
The treatment method depends on the type of burn. But all burns need proper rehabilitation, medication and surgical procedure to recover.
