Do Electrical Burns Leave Scars
Everyone has burned themselves on something in their life, pulling something out of a hot oven, touching a frayed electrical cord, or anything in between. Most of the time, small burns fade after a few hours to a few days, but sometimes burns are more severe and leave a permanent reminder of the injury.

Electrical burns can happen in a variety of ways and are usually accidental and easily preventable. This type of injury usually causes burns and scarring, but not always. If you’ve suffered from an electrical injury, even if you don’t see any external burns, it may be a good idea to get yourself checked out by a doctor.

Burn injuries are dangerous. In fact, burn injuries are one of the leading causes of death in the United States, according to the American Burn Associate (ABA). Even though most patients who enter the hospital with burn injuries end up being released and going home, they can still be life-threatening injuries. That’s why it’s important to understand where most burn injuries occur so that fewer incidences might happen.
