Scalded skin of an infant. Hot water burns on an infant's arm and chest. The epidermis of the arm, near the elbow, has peeled away. The chest area is less seriously affected. Surrounding regions have reddened. The child must be treated for trauma and pain, and the wound for infection. This wound is a first-degree burn which, although appears serious, will heal without scarring.
