Learning To Live With Burn Scarring

Posted By Simpson Law Group LLP Trial Attorneys Posted in:Burn Injury

May 18 2019

As little kids we bump, bruise, fall, and scrape over everything. Children are resilient in that way. They can fall over one minute and the next bounce back up and forget it happened. To help children cope with more severe scarring from wounds, we may say “cool battle wound” or “cool battle scar.” It encourages children to take a different perspective on their wounds. Instead of feeling scared or ashamed, they should feel proud and boast. Our San Diego Burn Injury Attorneys at Simpson Law Group represents victims of burn injuries who bravely show their scars. Severe burn injuries can cause scarring as the skin heals. The scarring can remind victims of the trauma they went through. Thankfully there are groups of people who are trying to help victims turn a negative experience into a positive one.

Burn Injury and Causes

People often think burn injuries only come from heat or flames. That is only one way of getting burned. Burn injuries can occur from chemical exposure, electrocution, friction, or radiation. Depending on the severity of the injury, people can suffer anywhere between first to third-degree burns. First degree burns are less harmful and easy to recover. Second or third-degree burns are more painful and need medical attention for healing. People who are suffering from second or third-degree burns often have scarring or discoloration of the skin as a result of the injury. If the victim is a young child or teen, he or she may be extra sensitive to their scarring.

Thankfully, there is a camp that supports children and young adults who have suffered a burn injury and have scarring.  Camp Beyond Scars is specially created to help children and teens learn how to cope with their injury and scars. Gathering 50 victims show the camp attendants that they are not alone. People are dealing with the same issues just like them. Creating inclusive situations helps to improve someone’s self-esteem and provides examples of how to cope with this new skin. Creating connections helps others see that they are not alone in this journey of healing. The camp promotes showing scars instead of hiding or concealing them. The end goal is to get attendants to learn to love the scars and feel more comfortable in their new skin.
