Tips on treating burns and scalds

 

1. Cool the burn as quickly as possible by placing the affected area under cold running water for at least ten minutes.

 

2. Cover the injury using a sterile dressing such as a clean non fluffy cloth or kitchen film, and seek medical advice. Dial 999 (or 112) in severe cases.

 

3. Raise the limb to reduce swelling.
