Burns To The Knee And Back Of The Knee?
Good night, I have a complaint 6 days ago I was scalded, the burns were from the thighs to the front and back knees, I went to the doctor and was given medication, the possibility of my burns was grade 2, which is my question whether the burns on the knee and the back of the knee can cause disability? And how to handle it so that it doesn’t become permanently disabled? Thank you very much in advance.
Burns are wounds arising from exposure to heat (high). Burns can cause damage to the skin and the inside of the skin as well as to organs and the whole body if they occur on a large scale.
Grade 2 burns indicate that the wound has penetrated the epidermis. In the classification of grade 2 burns, they are divided into grade 2 superficial (surface) and grade 2 deep burns. This condition can cause skin resilience and redness. Generally, grade 2 burns will not cause scars (scar), but there will be a change in skin color due to the burned melanin cells.
Of course, to prevent complications that can arise, you need to treat burns carefully. Use the medicine given by the doctor regularly and as directed. Eat balanced nutrition to support the healing process. And avoid irritation of the skin that is injured.
I hope this helps.
