Burns Home Remedies - How to Get Rid of Burns
A burn is a type of injury to the skin caused by heat , cold , electricity , chemicals , or radiation . Most burn accidents occur at home. About 75 percent of all burn injuries in children are preventable. An open flame is the leading cause of burn injury for adults, while scalding is the leading cause of burn injury for children. Both infants and the elderly are at the greatest risk for burn injury. Scalds from hot liquids and steam, building fires and flammable liquids and gases are the most common causes of burns. Burns can cause swelling, blistering, scarring and, in serious cases, shock and even death. They also can lead to infections because they damage your skin's protective barrier. Antibiotic creams can prevent or treat infections. After a third-degree burn, you need skin or synthetic grafts to cover exposed tissue and encourage new skin to grow. First- and second-degree burns usually heal without grafts.
