Thermal burns refer to any type of skin injury that is due to extreme or excessive amount of heat due to contact with a flame, hot liquid, hot surface or steam. These types of burns aren’t as serious as second or third degree burns, but they must be treated at a specialized burn center.
Here are the different types of thermal burns:
Open Flame Burn
It is estimated that over 40 percent of all burn injuries are due to an open flame. This kind of injury happens when you are exposed to intense heat for a long amount of time. Common areas or scenarios where open flame burns happen include in house fires, in a car accident, as well as camp or forest fires.
These types of injuries happen due to the explosion of a flammable liquid such as propane, gasoline, or natural gas. The heat from this kind of fire is undoubtedly intense, but it only lasts for a short amount of time. In this kind of injury, the neck, head and other extremities are affected, and second-degree burns are common on the victim’s skin. These injuries are also prone to infection, and can be very painful due to the concentration of nerve endings in extremities.
This type of fire injury happens when your skin is in close contact with something like coals, plastic, metal or glass. This can be in the form of a kitchen cooker or a wood-burning fireplace, or a heated implement at a metalworking factory. These kinds of burns affect an isolated part of the body, but they penetrate the skin deeply.
