In brief: Second degree burn
A 1st degree burn looks like a sunburn--red, painful skin.
A 2nd degree burn often has a brighter reddish hue to the skin & often has fluid filled blisters. These burns are usually quite painful & weep fluid. A 3rd degree burn will not be painful & will be dry & leathery. It is best to have your doctor evaluate the burn & make sure appropriate care is administered including antibacterial ointment.
