BURN FACTS - A burn is tissue damage caused by heat, chemicals, electricity, sunlight or even nuclear radiation. The most common burns are those caused by scalds, building fires and flammable liquids and gases.
- First-degree burns affect only the outer layer (the epidermis) of the skin.
- Second-degree burns damage the epidermis and the layer beneath it (the dermis).
- Third-degree burns involve damage or complete destruction of the skin to its full depth and damage to underlying tissues.
