How are you? Third-degree or full thickness burns extend into deeper tissues and may cause white or blackened, charred skin. The outcome usually depends on the nature of the injury ( like the size), the medical history of the patient and the treatment. Large third-degree burns usually heal slowly and poorly without medical attention. Scarring, contractures, and even amputation may result from this type of burn. However, new skin do usually does not grow because the epidermis and hair follicles are destroyed. Talk to your doctor about this for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
