How do you feel?

Question 1. Is the burn painful?

Yes. The burn if slightly swollen and red is probably a first degree burn. This is a "superficial" skin injury. More Information

Question 3. Is the burn white or black in color?
Yes. The burn may be a third degree burn where all layers of skin have been severely burned. Skin pain may not be present as skins nerve endings have died. If in doubt see a physician immediately or call 911. More Information

Burn Types
First Degree Burn

Examples of a superficial - First degree burns are: mild sunburns, contact burn injuries, or heat burns.
Second Degree Burn
Second degree burn picture   Superficial - Second degree burns usually heal in less than 3 weeks depending on severity. The deeper or thicker
the burned skin the longer the injury make take to heal.
Third Degree Burn
