What is burn level

There are three primary types of burns:

first, second, and third degree.

Each degree is based on the severity of damage to the skin, with first-degree being the most minor and third degree being the most severe.

- First-degree burns:

-red, no blistered skin

- Second-degree burns:

- blisters and some thickening of the skin

- Third-degree burns:

- widespread thickness with a white, leathery appearance.

- There are also fourth degree burns.

This type of burn includes all of the symptoms of a third degree burn and extends beyond the skin into tendons and bones.

Burn Treatment

Most minor burns can be treated at home. They usually heal within a couple of weeks.

COOL THE BURN:

Hold the burned area under cool (not cold) running water or apply a cool, wet compress

until the pain eases. Don't use ice. Putting ice directly on a burn can cause further damage to the tissue.

REMOVE RINGS OR OTHER TIGHT ITEM:

Try to do this quickly and gently, before the burned area swells

DON'T BREAK BLISTERS:

Fluid-filled blisters protect against infection. If a blister breaks, clean the area with water (mild soap is optional).

BANDAGE THE BURN:

Cover the burn with a sterile gauze bandage (not fluffy cotton). Wrap it loosely to avoid putting pressure on burned skin. Bandaging keeps air off the area, reduces pain and protects blistered skin.

TAKE A PAIN RELIEVER:

Over-the-counter pain relief medications can help relieve pain.

USE SKIN HEALING PROMOTING MEDICATION:

To promote skin healing process and prevent scar formation
