    Types of Burn Injuries

    Following severe burn injuries, patients may consider several medical options at different local facilities, some of which are better equipped to treat burn injury. Depending on the severity of the burn, patients may require complex skin treatments including skin grafting, reconstruction, and plastic surgery.

    There are three types of burns:

    • First-degree burns: outer layer of skin
    • Second-degree burn: outer layer and the layer underneath
    • Third-degree burn: affects deepest layer of skin and tissue

    Burns cause swelling, blistering, scarring, and can lead to infections because they damage your skin’s protective barrier.

    Ohio burn treatment centers usually offer both inpatient and outpatient services, which can include:

    • Advanced dressing options to minimize scarring, infection and complications
    • Wound care and management
    • Pain management
    • Addressing the mental, emotional and social aspects of burn injury

    Treatment for third-degree burns, burns to the face, hands, feet, genitalia, perineum and joints, electrical burns and chemical burns

    Understanding Burn Treatment

    The treatment of a burn depends on the severity and the type of burn. It is critical that all burns are kept clean and with adequate dressing applied. Pain management may be the most important factor in some cases as inadequate control can disrupt proper wound care.

    Ohio burn treatment centers can identify signs of infection and other potential issues like scarring and tightening of the skin over joints and muscles.

    The treatment of more severe third-degree burns may require skin grafting or the application of synthetic skin. Burns covering large parts of the body might need require systematic antibiotics to prevent infection.
