radiation burn

ra·di·a·tion burn

/ˌrādēˈāSH(ə)n bərn/

Noun

Burns from radiation look like other types of burns, although they may not appear until 12 - 20 days after exposure. The level and amount of burn is dependent on the type of radiation and the duration of contact. Radiation burns are managed much like thermal injuries.
