Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
A burn, depending on its severity, can be a mild condition, but it can also be dangerous. In general, a burn that causes the skin to blister and peel off may be classified as a second degree burn or higher. If the area affected is not too large, then this condition may not be dangerous. However, if this burn affects a large enough area of the skin, especially if it occurs in the locomotion, various complications can arise, including:
Bacterial infection, can be limited to burns or even spread to the blood (sepsis) Loss of fluid (dehydration, hypovolemia) Hypothermia (drop in body temperature) Excess scar tissue formation (keloid, hypertrophic scar) Movement disorders, for example due to skin, muscle, tendon damage (contractures), etc. Considering the very minimal information you provide regarding the burn condition that your nephew has, we strongly urge you to have your nephew checked by a surgeon or pediatrician. Thus, it can be evaluated as to what the burns are like as well as what kind of treatment is right to overcome them, whether it is enough with burn care, administration of drugs, or maybe it is also necessary to give fluid therapy to surgery.
In the meantime, avoid giving drugs or anything else to treat the burns on your nephew's leg. Just keep the burns dry and clean. Clean the burn periodically using intravenous fluids (NaCl). Avoid using pants or footwear that are too tight so that the burn doesn't irritate. Also give your nephew enough to drink and eat nutritious food to maintain stamina and also prevent dehydration.
Hope it helps ..
