Meaning of Burn
A burn is a type of injury to flesh or skin caused by heat, electricity, chemicals, friction, or radiation. Burns that affect only the superficial skin are known as superficial or first-degree burns. When damage penetrates into some of the underlying layers, it is a partial-thickness or second-degree burn. In a full-thickness or third-degree burn, the injury extends to all layers of the skin. A fourth-degree burn additionally involves injury to deeper tissues, such as muscle or bone. - See link


Burn in Spanish is Quemadura
Una quemadura es un tipo de lesión en la piel causada por diversos factores. Las quemaduras térmicas se producen por el contacto con llamas, líquidos calientes, superficies calientes y otras fuentes de altas temperaturas; aun con el contacto con elementos a temperaturas extremadamente bajas. También existen las quemaduras químicas y quemaduras eléctricas. - See link
