- Second-degree burns: These burns result from exposure to hot water, chemicals, or heat sources like ovens and stoves and affect both the outer and inner layers of the skin.
- Third-degree burns: This type of burn injury affects the outer and inner layers of the skin and can cause damage to muscles, tendons, nerve endings, and bones.
- Fourth-degree burns: These burns are life-threatening and extend to bodily deeper tissues and organs.
Victims of serious burn injuries endure immense physical and emotional pain. Permanent scars, physical disabilities, and psychological trauma often become lifelong challenges.
