There are four primary types of burn, depending on the symptoms and which layers of skin are affected: 1st degree superficial epidermal burn; 2nd degree superficial dermal burn; 3rd degree deep dermal or partial thickness burn; 4th degree full thickness burn.
Superficial burns may have been sustained from scalding water or exposure to the sun. More serious burns can be caused by harmful chemicals coming into contact with the skin or by electrical current or fire.
1st degree burns cause the epidermis to be red, swollen and painful. In 2nd degree burns, the epidermis and dermis are affected and skin is pale pink and painful, it will likely be slightly blistered. 3rd degree burns damage the epidermis and dermis, causing it to become red, blotchy, swollen and blistered. The skin may be dry or wet and the burn will either be very painful or painless. A 4th degree burn means that all three layers of skin – the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous – are damaged. Some skin may be burnt away, revealing pale or blackened tissue underneath; the skin that remains will be white, brown or black and may have a waxy texture. Some people with burns may also be showing signs of shock or smoke inhalation.

With any type of burn, the area should be kept clean to reduce the chance of infection. A thin, damp cloth or poultice may be used to sooth the affected area up to several times a day. Pain killers can be taken to manage the pain of a burn. It is important to keep well hydrated, drinking plenty of water. For burns that need medical attention, the medical professional will cover the burn with a sterile dressing to protect it. In the case of severe burns, a skin graft may be performed by taking healthy skin from another part of the body and using it to cover the most-affected areas of the burn. The damaged skin needs to be kept out of direct sunlight and even when the burn has healed, extra care should be taken when exposing the area to the sun by using sun protection factor 50 sun lotion.
Experiences and case studies
Various skin problems have been successfully treated with the help of bioresonance therapy. In one case, a woman had suffered from a painful inflammatory skin condition for 2 years, that made it difficult for her to walk and meant that she could not work. Biophysical testing showed that she had mycosis, which was then treated with Bioresonance and a change of diet. Her symptoms had improved significantly after just 3 weeks and after 8 weeks she was symptom-free, with no recurrence 2 years later.
