What is the difference between first, second and third degree burns?


Answer by  John (9008)

First degree burns are the least serious. They are basically like a mild sunburn. Second degree burns are worse, and blisters will be raised, but permanent damage is unlikely. Third degree burns are the worst. The skin is charred. Scarring is certain, and infection is likely. Third degree burns are also the most likely to be fatal.


Answer by  Sam65 (198)

A first degree burn is reddening and irritation of the skin. A second degree burn is blistering of the skink. A third degree burn starts with charring and loss of the first layer of skin and includes anything more severe (there is no fourth degree). A third degree burn should be treated by a doctor.

First-Degree Burns: it involves the top layer of skin. Sunburn is a first degreeburn. Second-Degree Burns: it involves the first two layers of skin. Third-Degree Burns: A third-degree burn penetrates the entire thickness of the skin and Permanently destroys tissue.
