A burn injury can range in severity, but in all cases, can be a source of great pain and discomfort to the victim.
If you have suffered a burn, it can be classed as one of three categories:
- First degree – a superficial burn affecting the top layer of the skin. Symptoms include redness, swelling and itching.
- Second degree – this burn penetrates the top layer of skin, and causes clear blisters, redness and intense pain.
- Third degree – this burn extends deep through all layers of skin, and causes stiffness and whitening of the affected area. As the likelihood of a full recovery is slim, amputation where possible is recommended.
