What Is Burns

Burns are the most common household injuries, particularly among the children. Burns is associated with the burning sensation as well as injuries. It can involve severe skin damage that can cause the cells of the affected skin to die. Many people generally recover from burn injury without any serious health problems, but it is dependent on the cause associated with the burn, its depth, its location as well as the degree of injury. The serious burns need an immediate emergency reach to the hospital and appropriate medical supervision in order to prevent the further complications and death.

There are basically three types of burns and they are first-degree, second-degree, and third-degree burn. Generally, each degree is dependent on the damage severity to the skin. The first-degree burn is considered as the most minor, on the other hand, the third-degree burn as the most severe. The damages, associated with these three types of burns, are as follows:

First-degree burns: In this case, the patients’ skin will become red and blisters are not developed after burning. This type of burn is actually regarded as the superficial that may cause a local inflammation on the skin. An example of such kind of burn is sunburn. The burning sensation is characterized by redness, pain, and a little amount of swelling. The skin may become very tender for touching.

Second- degree burns: It is associated with blistering and thickening of the skin. Second-degree burns are associated with more skin damage, inflammation, redness, and pain than the first degree burns.

Third-degree burns: It is associated with the widespread thickness along with a leathery and white appearance. Third-degree burns are associated with killing the affected area of the skin. The blood vessels and nerves will get damaged and so this type of burns appears to be leathery and white. Third-degree burns may be relatively painless.

There is also another type of burn that is known as fourth-degree burns. It is associated with all the symptoms and signs involved with the third-degree burn and it also extends the skin damage by showing the tendons and bones.

Burns is associated with the fluid accumulation as well as inflammation inside and around the wound. Skin is regarded as the first defence of the body against the harmful infection caused by the various microorganisms and so it is very important to take a crucial care of the burning injuries.

What Is Conjunctivitis

Redness or inflammation in the area under the eyelid and the eye’s white area is called conjunctivitis. It may be caused by physical agents such as ultraviolet rays or infrared rays, allergic reactions, or an infection.

Conjunctiva, which is a delicate and thin membrane covering the eyeball, and lining the eye lid, gets inflamed resulting in conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis is a prevalent eye issue due to the continuous exposure of conjunctiva to the environmental agents, and microorganism, which may cause allergic reactions or infections. Conjunctivitis can either be chronic, or acute. It depends on the duration, type of agent or organism involved, and symptom of the disease. Either one or both the eyes can get affected if it is caused by an infection. Even it easily gets transmitted if other people come in contact with an infected person. Conjunctivitis is highly contagious. Other names famous for conjunctivitis are a red eye or pink eye. 

What Is Wound healing

A kind of injury that is caused by various factors like an accident, surgery and certain diseases is called a wound. The skin may get punctured, cut, or torn to form a wound.

Wounds are classified into five categories, which depend upon their causes.

  • Abrasion: When skin is scraped or rubbed against a hard or rough surface, Abrasion is caused. An example of an abrasion is a road rash. Not much of bleeding is there in abrasion, but one must get the wound scrubbed, and cleaned, to abstain from any infection.
  • Incision: Incision is caused by a pointed or sharp object, like a razor blade, broken piece of glass, and knife. Incision causes a lot of bleeding. An incision, which is deep can cause damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
  • Laceration: A deep and rooted tear, or cut in the skin is called laceration. Accidental cuts with machines, tools, or knife may cause a laceration. In this, wound bleed extensively, and rapidly.
  • Puncture: A small hole may be caused by a pointed, long object, like an ice pick, needles, or nail is called puncture. Even a bullet shot can result in a puncture wound. This wound is enough deep to impair the body’s internal organs, though may not bleed that much. A Puncture wound may need an immediate expert vigilance. In some cases, even tetanus is required to prevent the infection.
  • Avulsion: An Avulsion is an extreme form of a wound. In this, the skin may tear away completely, or partially.  This wound may occur at the time of a vicious accident like a gunshot, explosion, or body-crushing accidents. These wounds may bleed rapidly, and heavily.
