When heat or fire damages the skin cells it results in burns and scalds. This damage is classified according to how severe the burn is. First-degree or minor burns only affect the top layer of skin, the epidermis, while second-degree or partial burns extend below the epidermis. Thirddegree burns damage the entire layer of skin, and there is a greater risk of infection and shock with these more serious burns.
