Hot milk causes scald injuries but not burns . Since u have not mentioned the percentage and extent of the injuries Here are the bassic things you need to do: Inmediately run the area of the scald under luke warm tap water from 15 to 25°c Increase the room temperature to that much higher than the body temerature of the toddler bcz the scald injuries causes heat loss 3ml/kg fluids should be consumed but not plain water preferably ORS but ringer lactate is the most ideal but this is generally given in hospital setting through an iv cannula if toddler accepts anything orally Provide analgesia to the toddler to reduce pain preferably paracetamol syrup 2ml immediately Tetanus (TT) ijection is a must . You need to monitor if the child is passing urine well or not
Next Steps
immediately go to the hospital emergency department if burns are severe then the following investigations need to be done asap CBC clotting studies electrolytes RFT LFT albumin cross matched blood products should be kept ready Creatine kinase if deep tissue burns are present
Health Tips
just be extra careful with kids unlike adults kids dont tolerate burn injuries that well . thank you
