What are the symptoms of burn injuries?
There are a variety of symptoms relating to burn injuries and these vary depending on the severity of the burn. There are many degrees of burn that can be suffered and these are very much dictated by the nature of the accident.
Here is a list of some of the most common burn symptoms:
- Thickening skin
- Boils and weeping sores
- Damage to tendons and muscles
Of course these symptoms may be accompanied others but this depends on the nature of the burn you have suffered. Continual pain is also something that burns sufferers experience if the burn has been a relatively serious one.
Damage to tendons and muscles are more often the result of a chemical or toxic burn or third degree burn. Burns as normally categorised as first, second, and third degree with third degree being the more serious. Fourth and fifth degree burns are usually only mentioned at inquests, as they are usually fatal.
The effects of burns can be many and the victim of a burns accident may find it necessary to have plastic surgery or skin grafts in order to try and repair the damage. While these procedures are necessary to try and reduce scarring, infection and damage to nerves they also require lengthy periods of time away from the workplace.
As the victim of a burns accident you may also find that your life contracts as you suffer a loss of self-esteem. Many injured in such accidents are often unable to socialise in the way they did previously because of their scarring and because of how they feel others will perceive them.
