Thermal and Chemical Burns

Burns are categorized as either thermal or chemical. Thermal burns, also called scalds, result from exposure to a hot liquid or object. Chemical burns occur when the skin comes into contact with an acidic or alkaline substance. Both types of burns can be extremely painful and cause serious tissue damage. Thermal burns are usually less severe than chemical burns, but they can still result in serious injury. First-degree burns only affect the outer layer of skin, but second-degree burns damage both the outer and inner layers of skin. Third-degree burns destroy all layers of skin and may also damage muscles, bones, and nerves.

Chemical burns are usually more serious because the chemicals can continue to damage the tissue even after the initial contact has been removed. First-degree chemical burns only affect the outer layer of skin, but second-degree chemical burns damage both the outer and inner layers of skin. Third-degree chemical burns destroy all layers of skin and may also damage muscles, bones, and nerves. Treatment for both types of burns includes cleaning the wound, applying antibiotic ointment, and wrapping the wound in sterile gauze. More severe burns may require hospitalization and skin grafts.

Complications

A severe burn could be a very devastating injury physically and emotionally. It could affect the person who suffers from the burn and the whole family. People with severe burns could suffer from the loss of particular physical abilities, disfigurement, loss of limbs and mobility loss, scarring, infection, and scarring. Severe burns may penetrate the skin’s layers, leading to muscle or tissue damage that could affect the entire body. Burns can also trigger emotional issues like insomnia, anxiety, or flashbacks of the horrific event.

Treatment

Thermal and chemical burns are among the most serious types of injuries that a person can sustain. In the case of a thermal burn, the skin has been damaged by contact with a hot object, such as a stove element or a piece of metal that has been heated in a fire. Chemical burns, on the other hand, occur when the skin comes into contact with a corrosive substance, such as acid or alkali. Both types of burns can cause extensive damage to the skin and underlying tissue, and require immediate medical attention. The first step in treating a burn is to cool the affected area; this helps to reduce swelling and pain. Burns should then be covered with a sterile dressing to prevent infection. For more serious burns, it may be necessary to receive treatment at a hospital burn unit. There, more intensive measures, such as surgery, may be required in order to heal the injury. Thermal and chemical burns can be extremely painful and debilitating; however, with prompt and appropriate treatment, most people make a full recovery.
