There are several ways in which you can obtain a serious burn to your skin. The sun, hot liquids, fire, hot surfaces like a curling iron, chemicals and electrical contact are some of the most common ways to be injured.
Burns are classified into three classes. First, Second and Third-degree burn.
First-degree burns are generally mild and require little intervention or treatment unless it covers are a large part of your body.
Second-degree burns damage the outer level of skin as well as the secondary skin level. This is the level of injury that is most common to see in our medical clinics.
Third-degree burns cause the destruction of several layers of skin and generally require emergency care.
