The skin is the body's largest organ, and one of its most complex. Among other things, it helps to regulate temperature and it serves as the first line of defense against infection. The skin serves as a barrier that prevents foreign substances, such as bacteria, from entering the body. It also prevents the loss of body fluids. When the skin is damaged, such as by a burn, it can no longer perform these essential functions.
A serious burn on the skin is one of the most traumatic injuries that the body can sustain. When large areas of skin are destroyed, even in second-degree burns, the patient may experience fever, circulatory disorders and shock, which require the care of a health care provider. Less severe burns can be treated at home, usually with cold-water treatment for pain or herbal remedies that help soothe the skin.
About 45,000 Americans are hospitalized for burn treatment each year, approximately half to the 125 specialized burn treatment centers, and half to the nation's other 5,000 hospitals. About 4,500 of these people die, according to the American Burn Association. As large as they are, these figures represent a significant decline in the number of incidents, and the severity of burn injuries, in the past 25 years, partly due to advances in treatment that lessen the initial shock and prevent fluid loss and infection. Health care providers have also improved their techniques for surgically removing burned tissues from the wound as soon as possible and for subsequently transferring new skin grafts to the damaged area(s). In addition, specialized nutrition focusing on specific nutrients has been developed and shown to improve recovery and speed the healing process for both minor and serious burns.
BURN FREQUENT SIGNS & SYMPTOMS
Burns are classified according to the following characteristics:
- Extent (amount of the body injured by the burns.
- Cause or type.
DEPTH OF BURNS
There are three basic classifications of burns, depending on severity.
First-Degree Burns affect only the superficial outermost layer of the skin, causing redness and sensitivity to the touch with minor or moderate pain. Sunburn is usually a first-degree burn, which usually heals in about one week, with or without treatment.
Partial-Thickness or Second-Degree Burns extend somewhat into underlying skin layers, but do not damage the deepest layers of the skin. Second-degree burns are characterized by redness and blistering. The blistering, in some cases, may not form for several hours. Fluid loss may occur with acute moderate to severe pain because nerve endings are damaged. Partial-thickness burns may require medical treatment. They usually heal within two to three weeks. Some scarring may occur.
Full-Thickness or Third-Degree Burns involve the entire thickness of the skin, all layers, and possibly underlying tissues such as muscles are destroyed. The skin may be red, or it may be white or yellowish, or leathery and black. There is usually little or no pain because the nerves in the skin are severely damaged or entirely destroyed. Because the skin has been destroyed, people with third-degree burns lose large quantities of body fluids and are susceptible to shock and infection. Expect scarring to be extensive.
EXTENT OF BURNS - THE RULE OF NINES
The Rule of Nines is a method for determining what percentage of the body has been burned. Although this rule is most useful for EMTs and paramedics who report information to the hospital from the field, anyone should be able to roughly estimate the extent of a burn.
The figure to the right shows the various divisions that have been made for the Rule of Nines. In an adult, the head and arms each equal 9 percent of the total body surface. The front and back of the trunk and each leg are equal to 18 percent of the total body surface.
For example, if one-half of the back and all of the right arm of a person has been burned, the burn involves about 18 percent of the total body area. The Rule of Nines is slightly modified for young children, but the adult figures serve as an adequate guide.
BURN TYPES & CAUSES
Burns are injuries to the skin and the underlying tissues and are caused by exposure to the following elements:
- Heat (thermal burns).
Thermal burns are caused by heat. A Sunburn is one type of thermal burn. Fire and hot objects such as stoves, pots, hot water, ovenware, microwaved foods and containers, for example, can all cause thermal burns. The first step when treating thermal burns is to put out the fire. Superficial first degree burns can be quite painful, but if there is clean, cold water available, placing the burning area in cold water helps to reduce pain. Clean towels wet with cold water can be placed on superficial burns.
Once the burned area has been cooled, cover it with a dry, sterile dressing or the large sterile cloth (found in your first responder life support kit) called a burn sheet.
Caution: Do not apply burn ointments, butter, grease, or cream to any burn!
Partial-thickness second-degree burns should be cooled if the burn area is still warm. Cooling does several things: it helps reduce pain and it actually stops the heat from cooking the skin. Cooling also helps stop the swelling caused by partial-thickness burns.
If blisters are present, handle the skin very carefully to prevent breaking the blisters. Intact skin, even if blistered, provides an excellent barrier against infection. If the blisters are broken, the danger of infection increases. Use only sterile water if the blisters are broken. Cover partial-thickness second-degree burns with a dry, sterile dressing or burn sheet.
Full-thickness third-degree burns, if still warm, should also be cooled with sterile water only to keep the heat from damaging any more skin and tissue, unless transport is immediate. Remove clothing by cutting it away from the burned area. However, leave any clothing that is stuck to the burn. Cover full-thickness burns with a dry, sterile dressing or burn sheet.
People who have suffered large superficial burns and all people with any amount of partial-thickness or full-thickness burns must be treated for shock and transported for medical care.
A burn to any part of the airway is a respiratory burn. If a person has been burned around the head and face or while in a confined space (such as in a burning house), you should look for the following signs and symptoms of respiratory burns:
- Singed nose hairs.
- Blackened nasal mucous membranes.
- Difficulty breathing.
- Pain while breathing.
- Burns around the face.
- Unconsciousness as a result of fire.
Watch the burned person carefully. Breathing problems that result from this type of burn can develop rapidly or slowly over several hours. Administer oxygen as soon as it is available and be prepared to perform CPR. If you suspect that a person has suffered respiratory burns, arrange for prompt transport for medical treatment.
If the person has injuries in addition to the burn injuries, treat them before the person is transported. For example, if a person has suffered a partial-thickness burn of the arm and has also fallen off a ladder and fractured both legs, splint the fractures and place the person on a backboard, in addition to treating the burn injury.
Many strong substances can cause chemical burns to the skin. Such chemicals include strong acids (such as battery acid) or strong alkalis (such as drain cleaners). The longer the chemical remains in contact with the skin, the more damage occurs to the skin and underlying tissues. Chemicals are extremely dangerous to the eyes and can cause superficial, partial-thickness, or full-thickness burns to the skin. Water should be used to flush chemical burns as quickly as possible to remove the chemicals from the skin. The person may need to be transported for medical treatment.
Always be careful with any substance, whether it be hot water, sunlight, chemicals, fire, or any other substance that may cause a burn injury.
When bathing, check temperature of bath water before putting yourself or someone else in it. Check the thermostat setting on your hot water heater and make sure it is set at an appropriate temperature to prevent hot water burns. This is especially important for children and the elderly.
Check food temperatures before feeding children or the elderly. Using a microwave oven to reheat food can be dangerous because of the uneven temperatures the oven produces.
When cooking on the kitchen stove, make sure all pot handles are turned inward away from the edge and grasping children's hands. Supervise children around hot materials.
Store smoking materials, matches, lighters, combustible materials and substances in a safe place and in safe containers. Supervise the elderly or children when these items are being used.
Read and understand the use of any chemical substances that may be used in the home or at work. Always become familiar with precautions, safeguards and treatment information.
Have on hand necessary first aid supplies to take care of any accidents that may occur and know the signs of shock and when to transport for medical assistance.

FIRST RESPONDER GENERAL MEASURES
If you suspect a third-degree, full-thickness burn, see your health care provider at once or go to the emergency room of the nearest medical facility. Do not attempt to treat the injury, do not remove clothing that is stuck to the burned area, and do not put ice or non-sterile water on the burn. A third degree burn requires profession treatment.
Cool a first-degree superficial burn or a second-degree at once to reduce pain and swelling. Immerse the area in cool running water, or use cool compresses for a minimum of 10 minutes. Do not use ice water or ice cubes, and do not stop prematurely. While cooling the burn, remove rings, wristwatches, belts, or anything else that could constrict the injured area once it begins to swell. Also take away any loose clothing that has not adhered to the burned area.
To remove hot tar, wax, or melted plastic from the skin, use ice water to harden the heated substance. If the substance does not readily fall away from the skin, do not force it. You do not want to pull away skin with the melted substance.
Transport burned person to an emergency room immediately for assessment by a medical team.
Following medical assessment and treatment, if necessary, home therapy will follow to help the healing process after a burn. Here are some home therapy tips you can try to help healing from a burn.
ALOE VERA HELPS BURNS HEAL
The gel-like juice of the aloe vera leaves has a cooling effect on fresh burns. It also aids in healing and promotes the regeneration of the skin. Aloe also reduces inflammation and moisturizes the skin. While aloe vera gel may be purchased commercially, you get the best results from using the fresh leaves. Cut open the thick, fleshy leaves and place them directly on the injured area. You can also scoop the pith out of the leaves and spread it on the wound. Aloe plants are desert-warm weather plants that available from most greenhouses or nurseries and are easy to grow indoors in cold regions by putting them in a sunny window and ignoring them (too much watering kills them). They grow outdoors in the southern states where temperatures stay above freezing.
After a minor burn has been cooled, apply aloe vera gel (fresh if possible, directly from the plant) or a product containing 100% aloe vera, to ease pain and promote healing. Caution: Do not put oils, greasy ointments, or butter on burns. Do not break blisters.
Potato compresses are a traditional remedy for mild burns. Grate a raw potato and spread it on a damp linen cloth; place this on the wound. Be sure to change the compress when the pain starts to worsen. The potato cools the burn and helps relieve inflammation.
While your body is recovering from a burn, especially a partial-thickness second-degree or full-thickness third degree burn - change your diet to provide a high Protein intake and with high mineral-rich foods and up to 5,000 or 6,000 calories per day. These are needed for tissue repair and healing.
Watch for signs of infection, odor, pus, or extreme redness in the area of the burn. Protect the injury from exposure to sun.
Drink plenty of fluids throughout the healing phase to replace fluids and electrolytes lost because of the burn and to prevent dehydration. Potassium rich juice and Green drinks are recommended for fast tissue repair.
MoonDragon's Health & Wellness Disorders: Dehydration
MoonDragon's Nutrition Therapy: Juicing
Keep burn injuries elevated to minimize swelling and promote healing. This is especially important for burns on the hands, legs, or feet.
Keep the burn lightly covered to minimize the chance of bacterial infection.
Try adding 1 tablespoon of powdered Vitamin C to 1 quart of cold water and spraying it on the burn site. This has been found to enhance healing. Or try using cold Clay poultices.
MoonDragon's Health Therapy: Poultices
If infection starts to set in, apply Honey 3 times a day after gently washing the area with hydrogen peroxide. Honey has anti-microbial properties.
APPLE CIDER VINEGAR COMPRESS
Apple Cider Vinegar soothes the skin. You can use apple cider vinegar compresses as a treatment for first- and second-degree burns. Apple Cider Vinegar prevents infection, soothes pain and kills germs. Moisten a clean cloth with apple cider vinegar that is undiluted and place it on the injured area. Repeat often. Do not apply this treatment to open wounds. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar containing "Mother" of vinegar is recommended. "Mother" of vinegar is formed naturally in unpasturized vinegar by the acetobacter is made from the juices of organic certified grown apples.
Hygiene is very important when dealing with any type of burn. Keep the area clean to help prevent infection.
A study in the effects of High-Dose Vitamin C Therapy for third-degree full thickness burns that was reported in the Journal of Burn Care and Rehabilitation concluded that persons with serious burns should immediately begin taking vitamin C. Vitamin C retards bacterial growth and as a powerful antioxidant, stimulating collagen production and is helpful in healing and rebuilding damaged skin.
Applied topically to burned skin, Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), a byproduct of wood processing, has been reported to have a remarkable ability to relieve pain and promote healing. Note: Only DMSO from a health food store should be used for healing purposes. Commercial-grade DMSO found in hardware stores is not suitable and should not be used. The use of DMSO may result in a garlicky body odor. This is temporary, and is not a cause for concern.
MoonDragon's Health & Wellness: Sunburn
MoonDragon's Health & Wellness: Pain Control
For third-degree full thickness burns, your health care provider may prescribe silver sulfadiazine cream (Silvadene). Cautions: Reactions to silver sulfadiazine are rare, but they can occur.
A medically supervised program for a more serious burn, or a burn in a sensitive location, may include the use of antibiotics, debridement to remove dead tissue, hydrotherapy to loosen dead skin, and physical therapy or splinting to prevent contractures (permanent muscular contractions).
In cases of severe burns, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy may be employed to reduce edema, scarring, and contracture. This treatment also improves the chances that a skin graft will take.
Severe burns often need to be treated with skin grafts to help restore the damaged skin. Healthy upper-layer skin from another part of the body can be transplanted to the burned area, but people with large burns often do not have enough of their own skin for transplanting. There are several biotechnological companies that make an artificial skin from collagen, a fibrous protein, and this serves as a scaffold to help promote growth of new skin cells and blood vessels, and also to temporarily protect the wounded area.
ACTIVITY RECOMMENDATIONS & RESTRICTIONS
Restrictions depend on the severity of the burn. Plenty of rest is needed for proper healing.
Drink plenty of fluids. When the skin is burned, it loses its protective function, and tissue fluid, called lymph, escapes. To compensate for this loss of fluid, make sure you drink a great deal of liquid, preferably mineral water or herbal teas to replace the lost electrolytes (minerals).
HOME-MADE REHYDRATION DRINK
TYPE 1: With Sugar & Salt
(Raw sugar or molasses can be used instead of sugar. Blackstrap molasses has many valuable nutrients that are very beneficial to someone who is ill, besides having a nice flavor.)
In 1 liter of clean water put 1/2 level teaspoon of salt and 8 level teaspoons of sugar. Caution: Before adding the sugar, taste the drink and be sure it is less salty than tears.
TYPE 2: With powdered cereal and salt
(Powdered rice is best. Or use finely ground maize, wheat flour, sorghum, or cooked and mashed potatoes.)
In 1 liter of clean water put 1/2 level teaspoon of salt and 8 heaping teaspoons (or 2 handfuls) of powdered cereal. Boil for 5 to 7 minutes to form a liquid gruel or watery porridge. Cool the drink quickly and start giving it to the dehydrated person. Caution: Taste the drink each time before you give it to be sure it is not spoiled. Cereal drinks can spoil in a few hours in hot weather.
To either of these drinks, add a half cup of fruit juice, coconut water, or mashed ripe banana, if available. This provides potassium which may help the person to accept more liquid. Try to adapt the drink to your region. If liter containers or teaspoons are not in most homes, adjust quantities to local forms of measurement. If you do not have a measuring cup or spoons, use a pinch of salt and a small handful of sugar. where people traditionally give cereal gruels to young children, add enough water to make it liquid and use that. Look for an easy and simple way.
MoonDragon's Health Therapy: Dehydration Information
EXPECTED OUTCOME - THE PROGNOSIS
Outcome is dependent upon the severity of the burn.
Infection. Loss of body fluids resulting in dehydration, from mild to severe, depending upon the severity of the burn and the treatment received. Scarring. Cosmetic surgery may need to be considered in severe burn cases. Permanent disability. Death may result in severe burn cases.
DIET & NUTRITION RECOMMENDATIONS
Herbs, poultices and compresses have proven to be very effective in caring for minor burns. In addition, there are many herbal and homeopathic remedies you can consider as an adjunct to traditional treatment.
Aloe Vera pulp, gel, or liquid can be applied to the burn as needed to relieve pain and speed healing. Aloe Vera has soothing, cooling properties and has been used externally throughout history to ease the discomfort of sunburns, minor wounds, cuts, scapes and rashes. Many researchers believe that Aloe Vera can enhance the body's ability to heal by stimulating the activity of collagen and elastin, two compounds responsible for healthy tissue integrity.
Goldenseal is a natural antibiotic that helps to prevent infection. It can be taken in pill or extract form, or used in a poultice and applied to the burned area. Caution: Do not take goldenseal internally on a daily basis for more than one week at a time, and do not use it during pregnancy. If you have a history of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, or glaucoma, use it only under a health care provider's supervision.
Bayberry, Black Tea, Green Tea, Blackberry Leaves, Sumac Leaves, Sweet Gum (also known as Liquidambar), and White Oak Bark contain tannic acid, which has been used in clinics for surface burns that have begun to heal. These herbs can be used as teas and as wet compresses.
Horsetail and Slippery Elm help skin tissues to heal.
Calendula, applied topically to the burned area as a gel or ointment, is effective as an anti-inflammatory agent and antiseptic. Calendula gel or salve is an ideal pain reliever for a wide variety of skin conditions including sunburns. Calendula extract blended in a base of Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, and natural Vitamin E is used to moisturized, soften and protect your skin against environmental influences. Calendula Officinalis (also known as Marigold) is widely recognized for its proven ability to care for all manner of skin problems, from chapped hands to open wounds. It is particularly suited for dry, sensitive and irritatied skin that needs soothing care.
Comfrey herbal compress can be used by taking comfrey leaf and Wheat Germ Oil and applying it to the burned area. It is a natural antibiotic that helps to prevent infection. Caution: Comfrey is recommended for external use only.
Tea Tree Oil is effective for minor burns, primarily as an antiseptic and disinfectant. Tea Tree Oil helps to soothe the burned area and keep burns from becoming infected. It is safe for both children and adults. Apply the oil, topically, directly to the affected burned areas. It immediately eases pain and speeds up the healing process.
Make a tea infusion of by bringing 1 tablespoon each of St. John's Wort leaves and flowers and Comfrey
Lavender Essential Oil is also effective for the treatment of burns. The oil may be used undiluted by rubbing several drops onto the skin or placing it on a gauze or a cotton ball and applying it to the burn.
Cantharis in 6X, 6C, 30C or 200C doses. Cantharis is good for all types of burns, especially for those with blistering. Take a few pellets of a low dosage every 15 to 20 minutes or a higher dose every hour. Reduce if symptoms improve.
Causticum in 6X, 6C, 30C or 200C doses. Causticum helps chemical burns and skin that fails to heal following a burn.
Unless otherwise specified, the following recommended doses are for adults over the age of 18. For children between the ages of 12 and 17, reduce the dose to 3/4 the recommended amount. For children between the ages of 6 and 12 years old, reduce the dose to 1/2 the recommended amount. For children under 6 years old, use 1/4 the recommended amount.
