A burn is an injury to the skin. This involves prolonged exposure of the skin to heat, extreme cold, a chemical or electricity. The skin is damaged. Depending on various factors (temperature, time the heat source acts on the skin, cause, age of the victim and location on the body), the depth of the burn may vary. Depending on the depth of the burn, the epidermis (top layer of skin) or even the dermis (dermis/deep layers of skin) can be damaged and cause symptoms.
