Caption

Second degree burns. Close-up of fingers blistered by second degree burns. The majority of burns are caused by accidents in the home. This was a non- accidental injury, however. Small burns such as this will not cause noticeable scars, although extensive second degree burns often require skin grafts. Burns are classified according to the damage they do. First degree burns, including sunburn, redden the skin and cause irritation. Second degree burns penetrate the epidermis and cause blistering, as here. Third degree burns penetrate all the skin layers, and often damage internal tissue.
