Burns and Their Complications

Household burns are the main reason why medical attention is sought in a specialized center.

Dr. Jill Waibel, Dermatologist with Baptist Health South Florida says she tends to see more young men to get burned, with a lot of work related injuries and war related injuries.

There are different types of burns: thermal, radiation, chemical and electrical. She says thermal burn is the most frequent and devastating burn.

The doctor advises getting a burn center immediately in case of having a burn in order to avoid complications.
