What are Burns?
Throughout your life, you may have experienced getting burned from household appliances like ovens or irons. These common injuries are characterized by skin damage that caused healthy tissues to die as a result of exposure to chemicals or intense heat. While many patients are able to recover from regular household burns without specialized treatment, patients with more serious burns may require additional care. There are three levels of burns our patients should be aware of:
- First-degree burns. These burns result in red skin that isn't blistered.
- Second-degree burns. These burns result in slight blistering and thickening of the affected skin.
- Third-degree burns. These burns cause thickening of the skin with a white, almost leathery appearance.
These burns may be caused by exposing the skin to hot or boiling liquids, chemicals, open electrical currents, fires, or the sun. If you experience a burn and believe you need to seek further treatment, we encourage you to Contact us and schedule your private consultation at your earliest convenience.
How Do I Know if I Have Burns?
Common symptoms of burns that many of our patients find they experience include:
- Swelling and inflammation
- A waxy, white appearance to the damaged skin
- A dark brown or charred appearance to the damaged skin
- Raised, leathery texture to the damaged skin
What Causes a Burn?
Each burn is unique to its specific situation, however, most of our patients find they receive burns from household appliances and circumstances. That may include a burn from a hot or boiling liquid like coffee or water, a burn from an open electrical current like a faulty outlet or exposed wire, a burn from a chemical substance such as household cleaners, or a burn from heat exposure like a stovetop or oven. Other burns may be caused by extreme exposure to the sun's UV rays or an accident.
