As any part of your body can be subject to severe burns or scalds the severity of the injuries and the treatment needed often depends on the part of the body affected. For example if a limb has severe burns it may be amputated or cosmetic surgery may be needed.
More serious burns and scalds can cause nerve damage, tendon, ligament or muscle damage, permanent scarring or even death. Scarring can also contract and cause reduced mobility and psychological distress.
We most commonly associate severe burns with heat however they can also be caused by cold, electricity, chemicals, radiation, sunlight or friction. Scalds are caused by hot liquids or steam.
