Degrees of Burns Causing Injury
Burns are common in a number of different accidents, but not all burn injury requires professional attention. First-degree burns are superficial and, while they may be mildly uncomfortable for a few days, do not require medical intervention. Second-degree burns are often the most painful, but only sometimes need medical attention.

Third and Fourth-Degree Burns
