Attending to fits
It is a misconception that restraining a child can stop a fit. Fits usually remit spontaneously within two minutes and while arrangements are being made to see the doctor the child is to be shielded from injuries. Keep the child lying on to his side so that he does not aspirate the secretions.
Place a cool, damp cloth over the burn area. If your child’s skin becomes red, pale, or charred, place a clean, cool, damp cloth gently over the burn. Cover him with a clean sheet and blanket for warmth before taking him to the hospital. Don’t apply any ice or ointment to the burn immediately.
Make sure toxic substances are out of reach and if you suspect an intake carry the container to the hospital. Do not attempt to make the child vomit chemicals like oils and painting mediums. It will do more harm than good.
It’s always better to be safe than sorry. There are timely and tactful techniques that make one resourceful .These skills will be your assets for a lifetime. So take time to know them.
