First-degree burns damage the top layer of skin, or epidermis. Radiant heat, chemical substances and electrical currents are the most common causes of first-degree burns. Typically, these types of burns don’t require medical treatment. However, burns that affect the face, hands, feet, groin or those that cover a large area require emergency care.
