The burn of the unspecified body region

About

A condition where the skin cells are destroyed due to exposure to heat.

A death toll of 180000 is estimated every year due to burns. [1]

- Can be classified into 1st, 2nd & 3rd degree based on the severity
- Burns can be due to chemical, electrical, thermal, exfoliate skin disorders, etc.

Minor burns heal themselves automatically when the skin regenerates. In case of major burns, new skin cannot regenerate quickly leaving the body open to infections from bacteria. Hence, serious burns are treated with skin grafting.
