I burned my hand on my straighteners. Will this affect my ability to feel when I touch?

In brief: Depends on depth

If you have sustained a third degree burn ( full thickness injury) which is probably unlikely, you may experience loss of sensation in the burned area.

In brief: Temporarily

If it was a mild burn, with only redness or blistering, once the area heals the feeling should return to normal.
If it was a third degree burn, with full-thickness skin loss, the area will likely require further treatment.
