Types of Abrasions

  • First-Degree Abrasion - A basic epidermal injury that does not involve bleeding or severe pain. 

  • Second-Degree Abrasion - The dermal layer of the skin might also get damaged causing a little bleeding. 

  • Third-Degree Abrasions - They are usually not called abrasions and there is a debate over this type. Some medical professional call them third-degree abrasion while some call them avulsions.
