Burns and scalds

Burns and scalds

The skin can get damaged because of excessive heat. If the source of heat is dry, for example fire or a hot iron, then the damage is called a ‘burn’. On the other hand if the source is wet like steam or hot water then the term ‘scald’ is used. Both cause intense pain and redness. Blisters (fluid filled bumps on the skin) can also form in the area.
