Third Degree Hemorrhoids
Matter of degree: There are 3 degrees of burn-1, 2, and 3 graded by severity. Sunburn would be a typical 1st degree burn, blistering from steam or a hot surface that is very painful would be typical for grade2. In grade3 burns the injury is so severe that the pain nerves are destroyed and paradoxically there is less pain. The crucial factor is how much surface area of the skin is involved. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
144 degrees: The break point is 144 degrees f, below that for about 10 degrees there can be reddening but no damage. Above 144, depending upon the part of the body (for instance skin on the inner thigh is more vulnerable), and the length of exposure, there will be more damage. There is no breakpoint temperature for 2nd to 3rd, just a matter of time. ...Read more
Depends on the joint: Or area of each. Often in a third degree, there can even be avulsions that cause more problems. I personally think a simple break would be better than a third degree in many different situations, especially with really bad ankle sprains when you actually tear ligamentous structures. ...Read more
All depends in depth: Scaring can vary. Deep 2nd acts more like a 3rd, superficial 2nd acts more like a 1st. It all depends on depth. Superficial may not scar at all, deep may scar significantly and may need to be excised and grafted. If the area is contracting and causing disfigurement, pain, or limiting mobility see a plastic surgeon. If it has healed and worried about aesthetics- sunblock daily, give at least 1 yr. ...Read more

Odd question but yes: A third degree burn is a full thickness burn where the entire layer of skin is destroyed. This means that healing requires ingrowth of skin from the edges of the burn. It would be usual for a 3rd degree burn to occur in the ear canal. The risk of any 3rd degree burn is that of infection under the dead skin. Given the proximity to the brain and vessels in the head, infection could be fatal. ...Read more

First is just...: ...Redness; bubbles and skin coming off is 2nd degree. Both increase chances of skin cancer in the future; 2nd degree is also a concern for infection, dehydration, and scarring.

Yes, the only way: This is a very significant burn and the patient's only hope of survival is with skin grafting. A burn of this size must be treated in a regional burn center for the patient to have any chance to survive. Besides the skin, attention must be paid to nutrition, infection control, lung status, therapy, and the patient's psychological and social well-being. This is a challenging situation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What is the % breakdown in the general population between symptomatic external and symptomatic internal hemorrhoids?
25% external 75% internal?
May not be known: Many people have or have had hemorrhoids. I am not aware of anyone trying to figure out how many are internal, external, or mixed, in origin. Perhaps the typical initial treatments would be similar anyway. Hemorrhoids are also classified as 1st-4th degree, depending on whether or not they stick out of the anus, which mixes definitions up some more. A web search also did not find any % statistics. ...Read more
