Thank you for the question.
Burns, especially in children, are indeed something that worries parents, and we understand your concern. Burns can be caused by several things such as exposure to hot objects, sunlight, radiation, or chemicals. It needs to be explained further the cause of your child's burns, when the burns occurred, and where the burns are located and how big, as well as other symptoms felt by your child.
The burn itself also has several degrees, which need to be recognized on the skin affected by the burn:
Degree 1, superficial burns that affect the outer layer of the skin (epidermis), usually due to exposure to sunlight, characterized by redness and pain. This burn is harmless and can be treated by using a skin moisturizer that contains aloe vera. Degree 2, burns that affect the inner layer of the skin (dermis), characterized by red, blistered, swollen, and very painful skin. Grade 3, burns that affect the deeper layers including fat and nerve tissue, are characterized by black sores, pale or white skin, and numbness. You are advised to immediately go to the emergency room to get further treatment, especially if the burn is a degree 2 or 3 and with:
Burns more than 20% of the body surface, where the reference is one full arm is 9%. Burns caused by chemicals or electric shock. Burns on the face, hands, arms, legs, legs, genitals, buttocks, which cause blisters. Burn sufferers are less than 5 years old, more than 60 years old, and have a history of other illnesses (pregnant, diabetes). There are signs of shock such as rapid breathing, weakness, cold hands or feet. In the meantime, things you can do before going to the doctor are:
Take off the clothes that are attached to the burn. Drain the water for burns for 15 minutes or more. Do not use ice or cold water. Do not smear burns with toothpaste, butter, leaves, or foreign objects as this will make the burn worse. Don't stick the burn with cotton because the fibers will be left in the burn. Use topical medication burns to prevent infection in burns. But usually this drug can be obtained by prescription from a doctor. Take pain relievers like paracetamol. Hope this helps.
