Burns are classified into different categories based on how deeply the burn might have penetrated a person’s skin.
First-degree burns are the least serious compared to other burns. However, they are painful and cause the skin to become red and sore. These are the typical household or work-related minor burns that often occur.
Second-degree burns affect the lower layer of skin, resulting in painful swelling and blisters. There will be blistering, moderate to severe pain, swelling, and discoloration.
Third-degree burns or full-thickness burns, are the most serious. They burn through the bottom layer of skin into the muscle and tissue. This can impact your ability to move at the burn location. It can also result in permanent scarring, discoloration, raised/jagged skin, and numbness at the burn site. Third-degree burns may not be painful at first since the nerve endings have been burnt, but can require surgery and/or skin grafts.
Fourth-degree burns can be fatal. All levels of skin are burned through along with fat, nerves, tendons, and muscles, often due to prolonged exposure to flames. The bones can even be affected. Victims who survive, will likely have irreparable charring and a waxy, stiff, or leathery appearance.
