A burn is an injury to the skin and may be caused by friction, chemicals, heat, electricity or radiation. The treatment depends on the severity of the burn. Burns may be classified according to the depth they affect the skin. So superficial burns which cause pain and then peel are classified as First Degree burns. These types of burn, typically caused by sunburn, tend to heal well but can lead to an increased risk of skin cancer in later life. Fourth Degree burns are extremely severe, penetrating through the skin layer and down into the the muscle, fat and bone. Because the nerves are completely damaged with this type of burn, the injury is painless. However the injury may require amputation and may even lead to death.
A burn should be cooled as soon as possible as this reduces the pain and the depth of the injury. However cool water should be used and not ice for the application of ice can caused skin damage. The burn should them be cleaned and covered with an appropriate dressing if required. Depending on the severity, pain medication may be necessary as well as antihistamines to help with itching during the healing process. For those victims who suffer severe burns, surgery may be necessary and if this is the case they are likely to require intravenous fluids and antibiotics to be administered in a hospital environment. The outcome of treatment depends on several factors including age of the patient, the severity of the trauma and the percentage of body affected by the burn.
