Caption

Doctor using a syringe needle to drain a burn blister on the hand of a 70 year old man. Most burns are due to accidents in the home, and are more common amongst the young and elderly. In this case the patient picked up a hot pan two days earlier. Burns are classified according to the damage they do. Sunburn, and other reddenings of the skin, are called first degree burns. If there is blistering and deeper skin damage, as here, they are second degree burns. It is sometimes necessary to drain the blisters to relieve pain. Third degree burns destroy the entire skin thickness, and may expose muscle and bone.
