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.

    First degree burns only effect the outer layer of skin and do little damage.
    Second degree burns dig deeper in your skin and the affects are more severe.
    Third degree burns dig deep into the flesh and are fatal and should be hospitalized.

    You have the answers right there, sorry its a little obvious but its the best i could do.
