Burns - Part 3
Dr. Edward F.Group III, DC, Ph.D, ND, DACBN
Most burns can be prevented by following general safety guidelines.
Children are especially susceptible to burns, so parents must be
especially careful to protect them from harm. Never hold a hot beverage
when carrying a child. Be sure to push hot foods and appliances away
from counter or table edges to prevent access by toddlers. Always turn
pan handles toward the inside of the stove. Water heaters should be set
at 120║ F or the "warm" setting. Before getting in or putting your child
in a bath or shower always test the water with your finger first. Better
yet, use a bath thermometer before placing the child in the tub. Never
leave a child unattended in the bathtub because she may turn the water
to hot. Teach children to "Stop, Drop and Roll" in case their clothing
catch on fire.
