First Degree Burns – Least serious but still painful, this type of burn damages only the outer lawyer and results in swelling, redness, and pain. Medical treatment is rarely needed unless an infection occurs, which is uncommon.
Second Degree Burns – This type of burn is when inner layers of skin are also damaged. These burns are very painful and result in significant pain. Blistering, redness, swelling, oozing, bleeding, and other serious injuries are also common. It is recommended that second degree burns of more than three inches should be treated by a healthcare provider, whereas burns less than that could be treated at home and should be closely monitored for infection.
Third Degree Burns – The worst and often most painful injury, third degree burns damage all layers of skin and cause charring to the outer layers. Blood vessels, nerves, muscles, and even bone may suffer damage from a third-degree burn. These burns are usually excruciating unless nerves are damaged, which pain may no longer be felt due to permanent nerve damage.
