Burns and scalds can be the most traumatic injuries possible to sustain.

Burns are caused by dry heat, whereas scalds are caused by moisture (liquid, steam, etc). There are different classifications of burns and scalds, depending on their severity:

First degree – a minor burn, a first degree injury will likely be red, sore to the touch, but will heal fairly quickly

Second degree – patients suffering from a second degree burn will experience blistering, pain and scarring

Third degree – the most serious types of burn often require skin grafts or even amputation to heal
