Homework Help: Health (Ms. Sue)

Differentiate between first, second, and third-degree burns.

A: First-degree burns are burns that affect only the outer layer of the skin and look pink, including minor sunburns and burns caused by a very short exposure to intense heat such as an explosion. Second-degree burns, which are somewhat more severe, are burns that extend into the inner skin and are red, swollen, and blistered. Second-degree burns are caused by brief exposure to flashes of intense heat, such as accidently, or unintentionally, spilling hot liquid upon yourself or grabbing a curling iron by the heated end. Third-degree burns, however, are full-thickness burns. These types of burns, which can be fatal, are often caused by extended exposure to steam or fire or to immersion in scalding water.
