They can be caused by a multitude of different reasons and the results of these burns can leave devastating scars and lifelong disfigurement.

The injuries endured by the people of San Diego can result in significant medical bills, lost work wages, mental and physical pain, plastic surgery bills, that aren’t always covered by medical insurance companies, and anxiety as a result of their injuries.

Types of Burns, Treatment and Available Options
There are three different types of burns that range in severity from first to third degree.
- First degree burns are characterized by red skin, and are mostly caused by overexposure to the Sun’s rays. This burn is slightly painful and can be treated with aloe.
- Second degree burns involves the outermost two layers of skin. This type of burn is more painful than a first degree burn and can result in the skin blistering.
- Third degree burns destroy the skin tissue and can potentially harm the muscle tissue, tendons and bones that lie underneath. Nerve damage is a possibility when third degree burns occur.
First and second degree burns from the sun can normally be treated with over the counter products such as aloe and other types of moisturizers, and can easily be prevented by applying generous amounts of sunscreen before any outdoor activity occurs. However, in the cases of liquid, electrical and auto accidents these burns need to be treated differently, and can result in significant scarring.
