When a burn occurs, immediately stop the exposure to heat and flow the burn area with clean water flowing for 15 minutes. Then after seeing a doctor and getting medicine, you can use the drug on your child. When applying an ointment, clean the burn before, can with clean water flowing, can also with NaCl liquid NaCl liquid can be flushed or compressed (with sterile gauze, do not use cotton) on burns for several minutes After the wound is dry, can be applied ointment given by the doctor Paracetamol can be consumed as recommended by the doctor who checks the wound burn does not need to be closed Repeat the use of ointment as above every 4-5 hours If blisters appear, try to keep the child from breaking the blisters If blisters accidentally break, immediately clean with NaCl and apply the ointment, then control back to the doctor Try not to hurt the affected area sun exposure or other heat exposure if the wound me If there is festering or a long recovery, you should bring your child back to the treating doctor so that he can be treated further.
