The very first signs of a burn from a cigarette are severe pain and redness of the skin. Find out here - What to do with a burn, and also - How to treat a burn on the skin
The depth of skin damage depends on the remaining symptoms of burns from cigarettes.
If only the horny (upper) layer of the epidermis is affected, then this is the lightest burn - I degree. In addition to pain and hyperemia, the skin becomes swollen with such a burn, and hyperemia turns into erythema, that is, redness, which indicates inflammation of the skin.
Burns from cigarettes of the second degree are deeper, with lower layers of the epidermis located beneath them - shiny, granular, prickly. Such a burn leads to peeling of the upper epidermal layers and the formation of a bladder that is filled with a yellowish serous fluid. The skin inside the bladder is red.
Even deeper layers of the skin (malpighia and papillary) are damaged in a third degree burn, which is also accompanied by the formation of a blister, but the skin inside it is pinkish or whitish. The burned place may lose its sensitivity.
