Burn injuries can be very serious depending on the degree of the burn. There are essentially three different types of burn injuries, first degree, second degree and third degree. Each severity has different medical complications and ways of treating the injury.

A first degree burn can be painful; it generally takes one or more weeks to heal and has no complications other than a greater risk for skin cancer later in life. A second degree burn (superficial partial thickness) can be very painful and generally takes 2-3 weeks to heal and has a potential for local infections. A second degree burn deep partial thickness can be extremely painful and generally takes weeks to heal. There are cases where this kind of burn will progress into a third degree burn, complications with this kind of burn may include scarring, and it may require skin excision and grafting. A third degree burn is painless due to the severe nerve damage that occurs. This kind of burn does not heal on its own and requires excision, other complications can include scarring and possible amputation requirement.
