  • What to do in case of a burn:

    Minor burns

        - 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 fluid 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
