Did You Know?
Burns in children
If the child burns him or herself with hot water or sticks to something hot, bring the child directly to the emergency room. Large burns are very dangerous because children are mostly made up of water and fluid, and fluid loss will affect them greater. Dangerous burns are those that affect the face, hands, feet, and genitals. Immediate first aid should involve, taking off the child’s clothes and source of heat, and running cool water over the affected area – preferably in the shower. Do not apply anything to the burn, as oil, jelly, and other substances may keep the heat in and intensify the injury.
