Burns of multiple body regions can be caused by a variety of different sources, such as contact with a hot surface, exposure to flames, chemicals, or electricity.
Diagnosis is based on a physical exam and history of the incident. Diagnosis is based on the severity of the burn, the affected body regions, and the underlying cause of the burn.
Differential diagnosis includes other skin injuries such as abrasions, lacerations, and contusions.
Treatment of burns of multiple body regions depends on the severity of the burn and the underlying cause. Mild burns may require only topical ointments and dressings. More severe burns may require skin grafts, physical therapy, and other medical interventions.
Prognosis depends on the severity of the burn and the underlying cause. Minor burns may heal without any long-term complications. More severe burns may result in scarring, disfigurement, and other long-term complications.
