Burnt skin…

When a person’s skin got burnt, a process call cautery will be done to remove all the destroyed tissue. This is being done to avoid infections or even further spreading of infections plus to mitigate further damage. It sounds ouch, scary and painful. The procedure is being done when antibiotics are not available.

Besides burnt, it is also being done to close amputations and useful in stopping severe blood loss.
