Appropriate Burn Care Crucial for Optimal Healing

Burn injuries are indeed among the most challenging wounds to manage. Following a burn injury, the wound healing process, as well as the time required for healing, will basically depend on the thickness of the injured dermis layer. Prompt and appropriate burn care is crucial for optimal healing and final appearance of the scar, since burn depth might dangerously increase if the wound dries or become infected resulting in delayed wound closure.
