Burn is an injury that is caused by heat and it results in death of a tissue. The nerve endings may be damaged due to Burns which may result in immense pain and discomfort.
Burns heal by growing and replacing the damaged layer of skin. The tissues in the wound start to dehydrate and contract forming Contractures. A contracture may cause limitation of movement if present on a joint or it may lead to unsightly appearance of the affected part due to pull on the surrounding healthy tissues.The burnt tissue usually undergoes a period of maturation for the next 12 to 24 months
