FIRST AID - FOLLOWING A BURN OR SCALD

Good first aid following a burn or scald can make an enormous difference in recovery times and the severity of scarring. Remember to COOL, CALL, COVER.

First aid advice from the British Burn Association:

  1. Cool the burn with running cold tap water for 20 minutes and remove all clothing and jewellery (unless it is melted or firmly stuck to the wound).

  2. Call for help: 999, 111 or local GP for advice.

  3. Cover with cling film or a sterile, non-fluffy dressing or cloth. Make sure the patient is kept warm.
