Hot liquids burn like fire and can cause life-threatening burns. They are the leading cause of burn injuries in children under the age of four. At the Bothin Burn Center, we can help by helping you avoid burns and how to treat a burn should one occur.
Scalds and burn accidents frequently occur when parents or caregivers are in a hurry, angry, or under a lot of pressure or stress.
Around 60 to 70 percent of all pediatric patients seen in the Bothin Burn Center have a scald injury.
Hot water scalding burns can happen in seconds. Make sure to always check water temperature before placing your child or someone you are caring for in a bath.
