Understanding The Cost of Living With Severe Burn Injuries

Many of us suffered first-degree burns while cooking or working with chemicals. These burns may hurt, but they are minor and do not penetrate the outer layer of the skin. For minor burns, we may apply a skin cream or antibiotic and move on with our lives.
