Various Types and Degrees of Burns


A burn is essentially a type of injury to skin and tissues that has been caused by heat, electricity, chemicals, friction or radiation. The most common form of burns happens due to contact with fire or hot liquids or articles.

Burns that affect only the superficial skin layer are known as superficial or first-degree burns. They appear red without blisters and the pain typically lasts for around three days. When the injury from burning extends to some of the underlying skin layers, it is called a second-degree burn that is very painful and marked by formation of blisters. It often leads to scars and takes up to 8 weeks to heal.

In a third-degree burn, the injury extends to all the layers of skin. Often there is no pain due to severe damage to the nerve endings and the burn area feels stiff. Healing typically does not occur on its own. A fourth-degree burn additionally involves injury to deeper tissues, such as muscle, tendons and bone.

Different methods of administration would generally be used for each of the above cases.

  • Sunburns: Gently apply Colloidal Silver using cotton, and allow it to sink fully into the skin.
  • Burnt Tongue: Spray Colloidal Silver in the mouth, and try to concentrate the silver on the area that is burnt. Colloidal Silver will usually provide lasting relief within five minutes.

CS speeds up the healing process and reduces scarring significantly.
