Quemadura térmica vista de cerca

Las quemaduras de primer grado o quemaduras leves causan solamente el enrojecimiento de la epidermis (capa externa de la piel), como se aprecia en esta fotografía. Las quemaduras de segundo grado causan ampollamiento y se extienden hacia la dermis (capa interna de la piel), y las de tercer grado causan la muerte tisular, atravesando la dermis y afectando los tejidos subyacentes.
