Types of Burn Injuries

A serious burn injury is excruciatingly painful. The recovery process typically involves comprehensive medical treatment, physical therapy, and even plastic surgery to mask the scarring. Severe burns can result in permanent damage to the skin and tissues, as well as limited range of motion due to nerve damage.

Common types of serious burn injuries include:

  • Third- and fourth-degree burns – First- and second-degree burns only affect the outer layers of skin, while third- and fourth-degree burns penetrate the tissue and muscles.
  • Electrical burns – Skin contact with live wires containing thousands of volts of electricity can cause severe and fatal injuries.
  • Chemical burns – Acids, bases, and hydrocarbons are the common types of chemical agents that cause burns. They are found in industrial and household products, including drain cleaner, bleach, ammonia, and solvents.
  • Scalding burns – They occur when hot liquid or steam comes in contact with skin and damages one or several layers.
