1. Stop Burning Immediately

– Put out fire or stop the person’s contact with hot liquid, steam, or other material.
– Help the person “stop, drop, and roll” to smother flames.
– Remove smoldering material from the person.
– Remove hot or burned clothing. If clothing sticks to skin, cut or tear around it.

2. Remove Constrictive Clothing Immediately
– Take off jewelry, belts, and tight clothing. Burns can swell quickly.

    Prevent burns by preventing fires and other accidents that cause burns in your home. Fires and burns often happen unexpectedly. However, you can take precautions to help prevent them. Be prepared and know what to do if a fire or accident causes burns in your home.Not all burns happen because of fires. Household chemicals, scalding water, and household appliances can also cause burns. So, always take preventive measure immediately to avoid them from spreading.

    Helpful post with lots of information! Burns are injuries primarily to the skin and underlying tissue. The skin is the surface area. Using these classifications, a physician can make a clear diagnosis. Everyone who develops blisters on their burns should see a doctor. Thank you so much and keep posting things like this.
