How To Deal With Burns In Children Aged 10 Years?
Night, this is my younger brother who is 10 years old, he had an accident and he fell on a pile of rubbish that was being burned, it was like burning the cable, then the wound was badly injured in the arms and right side of the stomach for 2 weeks but it hasn’t dried up too. the powder medicine is then sprinkled on the burn and as a result the wound is bleeding and when the bandage is about to be opened the blood comes out, so actually it is okay to give powder medicine directly to sprinkle the wound. r nThe medicine is like that. I was given Chinese medicine to drink high school with sprinkled on the wound, but why is it still bleeding? r nIs it better to do what should I do? r nAnd food or drink that should be avoided? And why are you given powder the wound is bleeding?
Thank you Ana Sari for your question on the HealthReplies.com forum, burns are a condition where tissue damage occurs due to conditions of excessive heat. Where in this situation symptoms can arise in the form of:
- red skin
- peeling skin
In a burn condition, the treatment depends on the weight and extent of the burns experienced. If the burns that occur are not extensive and are not severe in general, this condition can heal on its own. If the burns are extensive and severe enough, treatment usually requires treatment by the relevant health worker. Where the handling of these burns is in the form of:
- providing pain relievers
- Application of burn cream which aims to accelerate healing and prevent infection
- sufficient fluid needs
- can be accompanied by giving antibiotics if needed to prevent infection
Regarding treatment with the use of herbal medicines, there are several things that can help heal these burns, such as the use of aloe vera, honey, and several other types of plants. Regarding the blood that comes out, this is thought to be due to the tissue that comes apart when opening the bandage. It is recommended that foods with burns have a high enough protein content (meat products, fish, milk), as well as carbohydrate content (rice, wheat, potatoes) and adequate fluid intake. However, this should still be consulted with the doctor concerned so that a re-examination can be done to confirm the current condition.
