- DON’T use butter or lard to apply on a burn; this is an old wives tale; it may just ‘cook’ the burn! (rather used cold water, or a cool compress, or seek medical advice)
- Watch out for scalding dangers – cups of hot tea, pans on the stove, kettles and hot baths – all especially risky for energetic toddlers who tend to ‘explore’ the house.
- Never leave a child unattended in the bathtub, even for a few seconds. Don't entrust an older child to watch a toddler. If you have to answer the door or the telephone, take the child with you!
- Always test the water in the bathtub yourself before immersing your child. A child's sensitive skin can burn easily from water that's too hot.

- Wear a splint to prevent a contracture (a serious complication of burn scarring that can restrict movement and stop the circulation of blood flow, leading to death of tissue).
