December 2015 had 6 repeat questions from these notes".

1st-degree burns

Involves only the epidermis and are characterize by swelling, erythema, and pain (similar to mild sunburn). Tissue damage is usually minimal, and there is no blistering. Pain resolves in 48-72 hr; in a small percentage of patients, the damaged epithelium peels off, leaving no residual scars.

A 2nd-degree burn involves injury to the entire epidermis and a variable portion of the dermal layer (vesicle and blister formation are characteristic).

1. A superficial 2nd-degree burn is extremely painful because a large number of remaining viable nerve endings is exposed. Superficial 2nd-degree burns heal in 7-14 days as the epithelium regenerates in the absence of infection.
