- Apply cold compress. - Hold the affected area under cold water for at least 10 minutes, or until the pain subsides. - If the burn is more than 20% of your baby’s body, wrap a dry towel on the burned area to stop heat production.
2nd Degree Burns
- Do not pop burnt and blistered skin. Popping makes the affected area prone to more infection. Let the wound pop or dry on its own. - Cool the burn immediately under running water for at least 10 minutes.
3rd Degree Burns
- These may cause ï¬‚uid loss. Bring baby to a doctor or the emergency room immediately. Professional medical attention is still the best way to treat all types of burns.
What not to do:
- Use lotions, ointments, and creams - Use adhesive dressings - Break blisters
