Burns in Children: What to Know

For young children, it is common to experience injuries caused by burns and scalds. However, toddlers are most vulnerable to such risks due to their mobility and curiosity.

Burns are categorized into scalds caused by foods, steam, and hot liquids; flame, friction, chemical, electrical, and contact. Young children often get scalds resulting from hot liquid, steam, and food. All burns can be severe especially if they happen to the neck, face, chest, and shoulders. Even small burns can be painful and lead to the long-term effect. Serious burns are treated with surgeries and physiotherapy.
