A blister or Blein is a cavity in or under the epidermis, in which the moisture content varies.

Many blisters caused by extreme heating or cooling of the skin or by sustained pressure or friction. In the former case one speaks of a fire blister, in the second case just of a blister, or sometimes referred to as pressure blister. However, there are other skin conditions which can prevent blisters.

Burn Blisters

Blisters caused by contact of the skin with hot gases, liquids or other materials. Extreme cold, such as touch of liquid nitrogen, has the same effect on the skin as heat. Also highly corrosive chemicals can cause blisters when they come into contact with skin.

This may make it after detachment of the wound scabs from themselves grow new skin over the wound. The cure takes, depending on the depth of the burn, a few days up to four or five weeks. The hair roots and sweat glands lie deep in the skin. As long as only a part thereof is retained, wound healing is possible. However, the risk of wound infection is lurking. If this happens, the originally intact skin may still be destroyed anyway, so that formation of new skin is prevented. If this happens, the prospects are very unfavorable.
