Caption: Boiling water burn. View of the leg of a 58 year old man showing blistering and reddening of the skin caused by boiling water. Burns from hot liquids or gases are known as scalds. Most burns are due to accidents in the home. The raw skin of this type of burn may easily become infected, which requires prompt treatment with antibiotics. Burns are classified according to the damage they do. Sunburn, and other simple reddenings of the skin, are called first degree burns. If there is blistering and deeper skin damage, as here, they are second degree burns. Third degree burns destroy the entire skin thickness, and may expose muscle and bone.
