Differences in 2nd and 3rd Degree Burns

When you have been involved in an explosion, there are many things that you need to worry about. Being burned can be a hard situation to handle for anyone who may be involved. Determining the difference between a second and third degree burn can be hard because they are both quite intense burns with painful side effects that go along with it.

Second degree burns can be a painful process to go through. These types of burns usually are blistered and can look extremely red. Depending on the site of the burn will determine if their will be any type of scarring on the burn site. The larger the second degree burn site is, the more likely it is that someone will go into shock after the burn has happened. If you have a smaller second degree burn, there is a chance that you will not end up with any scarring on the burn site.

Third degree burns are the worst of all the burns that could happen to you. You should always remember that when you have a third degree burn, you need to get some type of medical help. When you get a third degree burn, the skin looks very different than having a second degree burn. Your skin will look leathery on the top of the surface. When the third degree burn first happens, you will not feel much of anything. The reason you won’t feel anything in the beginning is because of the trauma to the nerve endings. Once the nerve endings are damaged there is no getting the feeling back.
