Thermal Injury-Heat
Second Degree Burn

Description : Traditionally, burns are classified in three levels of severity: erythema (first-degree burns), blisters (second-degree burns), and full-thickness tissue destruction (third-degree burns). Thermal burns to the auricle, if untreated, may produce perichondritis. When burns to the external canal and tympanic membrane are caused by burning liquids, severe damage may result.

An accidental spill of hot bean soup has produced second- and third degree burns over the inferior half of the auricle and adjacent face.
