About skin burns 

Skin burns are typically characterised by varying degrees of skin damage. First-degree, second-degree and third degree skin burns are typically categorised based on their severities, and may be accompanied by skin redness, blisters, pus, permanent scarring or damage to the fat, nerves, muscles and bones.

A skin burn can occur as a result of exposure to fire, hot liquid or steam and sunlight. Depending on the level of exposure, the healing process may take several weeks or months, and in more severe cases, years. Itchy skin is a condition that may be experienced throughout this time. Fortunately, there are a number of ointments and topical creams available that provide itch relief.
