Mahmoud Burnia, Mohamed (2020-03-11)

Tilapia are primarily freshwater fish that live in shallow streams, wetlands, rivers, and lakes, and are less commonly found in brackish water. Dating back to 2002, Tilapia is the fourth most eaten fish in the United States. Due to its low cost, simple preparation, and mild taste, tilapia's popularity came about.(8) The tilapias can treat two types of burns which are second degree burns. Second degree burns are divided into 2 types which are: superficial partial-thickness burns and extreme partial-thickness burns. Some portion of the skin appendages remain viable in these burn injuries, allowing the burn wound to be healed epithelially without skin grafting. Superficial partial burning includes the epidermis and superficial (papillary) dermis, frequently leading to thin-walled, fluid-filled blisters. These burns look red, hot, and gentle. When held by a gloved hand, they are exquisitely fragile. By outgrowth of epithelial buds from viable pilosebaceous units and sweat glands residing in the papillary and reticular dermis, they recover in about 2-3 weeks, normally without scarring.
