Severe burns are one of the worst injuries a person may experience. They are extremely painful and recovery can be a long and excruciating process. Even if they are treated right away, scarring, disfigurement, and mobility issues can occur. Infection is also a potential risk, making immediate and ongoing treatment a necessity if burns are severe.

About Burn Injuries
Burns can be caused by:
- Hot liquid
- Hot surfaces
- Fires and explosions
- Sun exposure
These may occur in varying degrees, causing the following damage/symptoms:
- First-degree burns are the least serious and are characterized by red skin
- Second-degree burns involve blisters and some skin thickening
- Third-degree burns have a white, leathery appearance and cause widespread skin thickness
- Fourth-degree burns are extremely severe and extend down to the tendons and bones
Treatment for serious third- or fourth-degree burns may be quite extensive and may require plastic and/or reconstructive surgery to restore form and function to the affected part of the body. Medication may be needed to prevent infection and to help with pain management. In some cases, physical therapy may be required to help a patient regain mobility and strength.
