Cosmetically and functionally quite disturbing to the patient. A lot of improvement may be offered by medical treatment, surgeries, lasers and allied treatments.
Because of skin deficit after burns, parts get joined, resulting in contractures, which can be effectively removed by surgery.
Can occur after deep burns. Can be cosmetically, functionally objectionable and may itch a lot.
Post Burn Pigmentation:
At times, the pigmentation after burn healing is so ugly. Medical treatment and lasers may be required for the same.
Post-burn vitiligo (White patches):
Is another problem encountered socially, and may even need to be treated for marriage purposes. Surgery may be the only answer if color has not come back 2 years post burn.
Burn Face Scar:
Always objectionable to the patient. Acid burns leave behind worst scars with may be eye loss. Surgery help to a significant extent.
