Burns can be classified as first, second, or third-degree burns and occur when the skin is damaged by a heat source
Burns are categorized based upon how deep the skin damage goes. First-degree burns are usually fairly minor and can be treated at home. Second and third-degree burns typically need more care. Second-degree burns damage the outer and second layer of skin while third-degree burns reach the fat layer beneath the skin.
Common Causes of Burns
