Symptoms of Burn Injury

Depending on how severely the skin has been damaged, burn symptoms differ. The warning signs and symptoms of a serious burn may not show for a day or two.

1st-degree burn

This mild burn merely penetrates the skin's surface layer (epidermis). Redness and discomfort could result.

2nd-degree burn

Both the epidermis and the second layer of skin (dermis) are affected by this kind of burn. It could result in skin that is swollen, red, white, or patchy. The pain may become intense and blisters may form. Scarring may result from second-degree burns that are deep.

3rd-degree burn

This burn penetrates the fat layer beneath the epidermis. Burned patches might be white, brown, or black in color, and the skin could appear leathery. Burns of the third degree can damage nerves, resulting in numbness.
