Patient discussion about third
Q. What are first, second and third degree burns? What’s the difference between them and do they get treated in a different way?
First-degree burns are considered mild compared to other burns. They result in pain and reddening of the epidermis (outer layer of the skin).
Second-degree burns affect the epidermis and the dermis (lower layer of skin). They cause pain, redness, swelling, and blistering.
Third-degree burns go through the dermis and affect deeper tissues. They result in white or blackened, charred skin that may be numb.
Hope this helps.
