why steam burns often have more severe effects than burns due to boiling water!

1 Answer:

Hi Faridah,

Burns are a type of injury caused by exposure to high temperatures in the body. Burns are classified by the degree of burn. Clinical manifestations (images / symptoms) of burns can be identified by these classifications, namely:

 First degree burns: superficial burns, skin that looks red, dry and painful Second degree burns: burns that occur on the surface of the skin and parts of the skin (epidermis and dermis), the skin will appear red, blister, blister, swelling or pain Third degree burns: burns that affect all layers of the skin or even deeper, wounds appear pale (white), scorch and numbness Exposure to boiling water does not guarantee a burn will be lighter compared to hot steam. The reason is, the severity of the burn is determined by how high the temperature causing the injury and how long the exposure to high temperatures occurs. Thus, burns from boiling water can be heavier than exposure to hot steam.

You can also ask this directly with the doctor if there are still things that are not clear so that the doctor can provide a detailed explanation about this.

May be useful,
