We are delighted to be working with Fred Safety. In our first aid classes, we teach parents, carers and children about how to (and how not to) treat burns. Often, we see images of burns in the media around Bonfire Night when the sparklers and fireworks come out.
In reality, the most common place for children to receive a burn injury is at home. Scald injuries happen all year round and the most common cause is hot drinks so it is really important we remember to keep those hot drinks away from little hands! Obviously, accident prevention comes first and foremost so here are a few other tips:
In the Kitchen:
In the Bathroom:
If an accident does happen, following these simple steps can make all the difference:
1) Remove the burning source. Sounds obvious, but easily forgotten.
2) Cool the burnt area. Run affected area under cool (not cold) water from a tap / shower for at least 10 mins. Your little one might cry but it is worth it to minimise permanent damage.
3) Cover the burn with clingfilm. Nothing more, nothing less. No lotions and potions.
4) Keep warm. This doesn’t sound right but children can lose body heat very quickly after all that cooling, so keep your child (not the burnt area) warm on your way to A&E.
5) Act quickly – the sooner a medical professional can start treatment the better.
We really hope you don’t have to use this advice but we know from so many parents, the difference their first aid knowledge made in treating their child’s burn effectively and avoiding long term damage.
