The Anatomy of a Burn Injury
Burns are categorized by severity and the amount of damage to the skin. Burns can be classified as:
- First degree burns — Involving the outer layer of skin, first degree burns cause minimal tissue damage.
- Second degree burns — Involving two layers of skin: the outer layer (epidermis) and the next layer (dermis).
- Third degree burns — Involving three layers of the skin: The epidermis (outer layer), dermis (second layer) and hypodermis (third layer). Because so much skin and tissue is damaged, third degree burns are very slow to heal.
Burns can cause excruciating pain and can take months and even years to heal. Burns are highly susceptible to infections. Second and third degree burns can cause scarring and, possibly, disfigurement.
