Causes of Burn Injuries

Many people sustain burn injuries from:
- Chemical accidents

- Car accidents

Degrees of Burns
Burn injuries are typically classified into three categories, commonly referred to as "degrees." The higher the degree, the more severe the burn is.
- First-degree: First-degree burns are considered mild burns that only affect the outer layer of skin, resulting in pain, redness, swelling. First degree burns typically heal on their own with simple at-home first aid, with long-term damage being extremely rare.
- Second-degree: Second-degree burns affect the top two layers of skin, resulting in pain, redness, swelling, and blistering. Also known as "partial thickness burns," this degree of burn can sometimes leave scarring or permanent changes in the color of the skin. Second-degree burns that are larger than two to three inches or which affect the hands, feet, face, groin, buttocks, or other joint are considered major by medical standards.
- Third-degree: Third-degree burns penetrate into the deep layers of skin, turning the skin black, brown, white, or yellow. Third-degree burns often involve the destruction of nerve endings, causing permanent numbness and scarring.
