Different Categories of Burns

Burn injuries are classified into different categories of ‘degrees,’ which are categorized based on severity. 

  1. First-degree burns: First-degree burns are mild and only impact the epidermis, which is the outer layer of the skin. These types of burns are characterized by redness of the skin and mild pain that goes away with time. First-degree burns can occur from quickly touching a hot pan on the stove or similar instances.
  1. Second-degree burns: Second-degree burns are more severe and impact the epidermis (outer layer of skin), as well as the dermis (the lower layer of skin). Second-degree burns are characterized by pain, redness, blistering, and swelling. These types of burns can occur from accidentally pouring scalding water onto your body or momentarily touching a hot clothes iron. 
  1. Third-degree burns: Third-degree burns are the most severe burns, as they impact the epidermis (outer layer of skin), the dermis (the lower layer of skin), as well as the tissue underneath. These types of burns are characterized by white, blackened, or charred skin, which may even cause nerve damage depending on the severity of the burn. Third-degree burns can occur from fires, electrical burns, and more.
