Burn Awareness Week: Burn Care

5 Comments

Burn Awareness Week |  BURN CARE

Here are some dos and don'ts to help limit the damage after a burn or scald.

Do's

  • Immediately cool the burn with water. Pour cool water on burns or soak them for at least three to five minutes (30-40 minutes for chemical injury). Do not use ice as it may cause more damage, stick to the burn and remove the skin.
  • Cover the burn. Apply a soft, clean, dry dressing, bandage or sheet to the burned area.  Do not break blisters — this could lead to infection.
  • Seek medical help as necessary. For adults, if the burn is larger than the size of a quarter, see a doctor.  Infants, young children and the elderly are endangered by even small burns. The hands, feet, face (especially eyes) and genitalia are critical areas.  Electricity, chemicals and smoke or toxic fumes complicate a burn injury.  Certain existing conditions, such as diabetes, and mental and physical impairment, can also cause complications.
  • In the event of a chemical burn, gently brush any dry chemicals off the skin with a dry cloth. Remove clothing and contact lenses, if necessary, before flushing the affected area with water for at least 20 minutes or until pain stops. Use caution not to flush chemicals on to other parts of the body. Read the container label or consult with the Poison Control Center before administering first aid.

Dont's 

  • Never use ointment or butter. Use only cool water on burns. Ointment, butter, cream and salve cause the burn to retain heat, may cause infection, and may hinder medical evaluation.
  • In the event of an electrical burn, DO NOT touch the injured person until the source of power has been disconnected.  Primary concerns are airway, breathing, circulation, and cervical spine immobilization.  Electricity can cause the heart and breathing to stop. Assess for injuries and begin first aid.  Internal injuries may not be evident as electricity can cause severe damage inside the body when it enters and exits. Call 9-1-1.

REAL LOVE SPELL CASTER DR BOB THAT HELP ME SAVE MY RELATIONSHIP.TEXT OR ADD HIM UP ON WHATSAPP: +2349153314547

My name is TISHA TAYLOR .I want to give thanks to DR BOB for bringing back my ex husband.No one could have ever made me believe that the letter I’m about to write would actually one day be written. I was the world’s biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like this, but I was told by a reliable source (a very close co-worker) that Trust is a very dedicated, gifted, and talented person,It was one of the best things I have ever done. My love life was in shambles; I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn’t face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn’t seem to care. and he broke up with me again . I was confused and did not know what to do again, rather they got in contact with DR BOB. He did a love spell that made my husband come back to me. We are now very much happy with ourselves. DR BOB makes him realize how much we love and need each other .This man is for REAL and for good . He can also help you to fix your broken relationship. I had my husband back! It was like a miracle! He suddenly wanted to go to marriage counseling, and we’re doing very, very well , in our love life . contact email: drbobsupernaturalspelltemple@gmail.com
