Second Degree Burns

This type of burn is more serious than a first-degree burn. A Second-degree burn affects both the epidermis (outer-layer) and the dermis (under lying layer of skin). This type of burn typically causes redness, pain, swelling and blisters. Often these burns will affect sweat glands and hair follicles. When not properly treated, a second-degree burn can result in swelling and decreased blood flow in the trauma tissue.
