  • Heat burns (thermal burns)

    Are caused by fire, steam, hot objects or liquids. Scalds are a result of contact with hot liquids.

  • Cold temperature burns

    Occur when the skin is exposed to wet, windy or cold conditions.

  • Chemical burns

    Are caused by contact with household or industrial chemicals in a liquid, solid or gas form. Foods such as chilli peppers, which contain a substance that will irritate the skin, can cause a burning sensation.

  • Electrical burns

    Result from contact with electrical sources or lightening.

  • Radiation burns

    These types of burns are caused by the sun, tanning booths, sunlamps, x-rays or radiation therapy for cancer treatment.

  • Friction burns

    Occur following contact with a hard surface, such as roads (“road rash”), carpets or gym floors. They are usually both a scrape and a heat burn.

    Burns to airways can be caused by smoke inhalation, steam and toxic fumes. Breathing in hot air or gases can injure the lungs, whilst breathing in toxic gases, such as carbon monoxide, can cause poisoning.
