Burns- Symptoms

Superficial burns or 1st degree burns are the most minor of skin burns because only the first layer (or most outer layer) of skin is burned. Some of the symptoms involved with a superficial burn include:
- Redness
- Warmth 
- Minor swelling 
- Pain 
- No blisters 

Superficial partial thickness burns or 2nd degree burns involve a burn to the first and a bit of the second layer of the skin. Some of the symptoms involved with a superficial partial thickness burn include:
- Blisters 
- Wetness (if the blisters break open) 
- Whitish appearance 
- Severe Pain
- Fever (possible)
- Shock (possible) 

Deep partial thickness burns or 2nd degree burns occur when the first and second layers of the skin are burned. Some of the symptoms involved with a deep partial thickness burn include: 
- More white wounds than red wounds on skin
- Damaged blood vessels 
- Severe Pain (but may also not be painful if nerves in the skin are damaged) 

Full thickness burns or 3rd degree burns are the most serious of skin burns because they involve all the layers of the skin as well as the tissue that lay under the skin (including fat, muscle, and bone). Some of the symptoms involved with a full thickness burn include:
- Skin starts out red and then becomes white within 24 hours of injury 
- Dry and leathery 
- Little to no pain (because nerves in the skin are damaged)
