Burns can also be life-threatening, weakening the body and making it vulnerable to infections and other complications. With more than 40,000 Americans facing hospitalization due to burns every year, it is crucial that you get the medical care and support you need following a burn injury.

- Scalding burns – This occurs when the skin comes into contact with an extremely hot liquid.
