People who suffer these burns often initially do not feel the pain. More specifically, the body of burn victims who suffer third degree burns often suffer shock and do not feel the pain. Additionally, the severe burn also often destroys nerves in the area of the burn preventing the pain from registering. However, after the inital shock and injury of the burn, the pain becomes extreme causing intense suffering. Further, significant third degree burns often cause catastrophic injury or death. These burns are the worst type of burns. Burned areas of the body may appear charred black or dry and white. For anyone suffering third degree burns, immediately call for emergency medical assistance. Until an emergency unit arrives it might be helpful to follow these steps:
Don't remove burnt clothing. However, make sure the victim is no longer in contact with hot or smoldering materials, smoke, or heat.
Don't immerse severe large burns in cold water. Doing so could cause the burned person to go into shock.
Check for signs of circulation (breathing or movement). If there is no breathing or other sign of circulation, begin cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
Cover the area of the burn. Use a cool, moist, sterile bandage; clean, moist cloth; or moist towels.
Serious Second Degree Burn Claims
Second-degree burns occur when the first layer of skin has been burned through and the second layer of skin (dermis) also is burned. Blisters develop and the skin takes on an intensely reddened, splotchy appearance. Second degree burns produce severe pain and swelling.
If the second degree burn is small no larger than 2 inches in diameter, it can be treated as a minor burn. However, if the burned area is the result of an electrical shock, larger than 2 inches, or if the burn is on the hands, feet, face, groin or buttocks, or over a major joint, get medical help immediately.
First Degree Burns
First-degree burns are the least serious burns and are those in which only the outer layer of skin (epidermis) is burned. The skin is usually red, with swelling and pain sometimes present. The outer layer of skin hasn't been burned through. First-degree burns can be treated as a minor burn unless it involves substantial portions of the hands, feet, face, groin or buttocks, or a major joint. It is always best to seek the assistance of a medical professional if the burn is large or painful enough to cause concern.
Minor Burn Treatment
While painful most minor burns usually heal without further treatment. They may heal with pigment changes, meaning the healed area may be a different color from the surrounding skin. However, it is important to watch for signs of infection, such as increased pain, redness, fever, swelling or oozing. If infection develops, seek medical help. Avoid re-injuring or tanning if the burns are less than a year old — doing so may cause more extensive pigmentation changes. Use sunscreen on the area for at least a year.
Cool the burn. Hold the burned area under cold running water for at least 5 minutes, or until the pain subsides. If this is impractical, immerse the burn in cold water or cool it with cold compresses. Cooling the burn reduces swelling by conducting heat away from the skin. Don't put ice on the burn. Putting ice directly on a burn can cause frostbite, further damaging your skin.
Cover the burn with a sterile gauze bandage. Don't use fluffy cotton, which may irritate the skin. Wrap the gauze loosely to avoid putting pressure on burned skin. Bandaging keeps air off the burned skin, reduces pain and protects blistered skin. Don't break blisters. Broken blisters are vulnerable to infection.
Take an over-the-counter pain reliever. These include aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others), naproxen (Aleve) or acetaminophen (Tylenol, others). Never give aspirin to children or teenagers.
