Second-degree Burns

  • Second-degree Burns
  • Second-degree Burns

Description of disability:

These burns are more serious because the damage extends beyond the top layer of skin. This type burn causes the skin to blister and become extremely red and sore.

Some blisters pop open, giving the burn a wet or weeping appearance. Over time, thick, soft, scab-like tissue called fibrinous exudate may develop over the wound.

Treatment:

The second degree burns were debrided, silver-based ointment applied and a sterile polythene cover was placed over the burn area and tied proximally airtight. This helped retain the moisture inside and aided good healing in 2 weeks. 

Due to the delicate nature of these wounds, keeping the area clean and bandaging it properly is required to prevent infection. This also helps the burn heal quicker.

Post operative care: 

Rest and elevation of the part and change of the polythene cover every few days is necessary till satisfactory healing.
