Burns are among the most common of injuries, particularly in the household and among children. They range in severity from relatively minor first-degree burns, which will usually be red and not blister the skin, up to much more severe third-degree burns, where the skin will display widespread thickening with a white, leathery appearance.
Anyone with more serious burns should receive immediate emergency medical treatment to help prevent complications or even death.
Ashtons provides a range of burns products to treat burns of varying severity, including gels, dressings, creams, sterile solutions and even a sterile burn bag to protect badly burnt hands from further injury or infection.
