Firework injuries. Superficial burns on a 17 year old boy's palm caused by the explosion of a home-made firework. Burns reduce the skin's defence against airborne bacteria, making infections on a burn site a major concern. Burns are generally treated with an antibacterial dressing or left exposed to heal naturally.
