Caption: Glue gun burn. Close-up of a burn on the thumb of a 25-year-old woman after an accident with a glue gun. Chemicals in the glue have caused the skin to burn. The skin of the whole thumb is reddened and sore. Blistering (white) has occurred with the outermost layer of skin having broken to expose the underlying layers. This wound must be kept clean to reduce the possibility of invading bacteria causing an infecton.
