Bruise and Burns
A bruise is a blue patch that may form anywhere in the skin after a fall or a blow. This is due to bleeding under the skin.
No special treatment is necessary. If possible, a cold compress can be given immediately after the injury.
If your child bruises very easily you should consult a doctor.
Burns may be caused by fire, hot liquids, chemicals or electricity and sometimes, they can be dangerous.
Shock is a very serious complication. If the clothing catches fire, either wrap the child immediately in a coat or blanket, or throw water or cold milk on him.
Do not attempt to remove clothing from the burnt area, do not use absorbent cotton, oily substances or antiseptics.
You must take the child to the hospital.
Offer the child some fluids to drink because he is losing a lot of fluid from the burnt area.
In the case of a chemical burn, wash off as much as possible with clean water and consult a doctor.
For a minor burn, immerse the area in cold water or apply ice. Cover the area with a paste of baking soda and water or Burnol. Cover losely with sterile gauze or clean cloth, and bandage loosely.
