Third degree burn healing time

How long does it take a second or third degree burn to heal completely? I got a burn last year when my pants caught fire. The size of the burn it's about the size of a quarter. Now, after months my burn looks red underneath my skin. I'm just curious how long it takes for the skin to recover completely? I know I'll have a scar

Hello,
Second degree burns take atleast 2-3 weeks to heal and third degree burns take a long time to heal. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Hello,
I have a deep 2nd degree burn from a motorcyle exhaust. It has been a month already & it looked like it was healing well. Now around the small dark scar patch I have noticed some small red spots that are itchy. Is this normal ?.
