How to prevent and first aid burns especially on Diwali
A joyful festival like Diwali can turn into a nightmare if proper safety measures are not taken while playing with fire crackers. Avoiding firecrackers is the best thing you can do to avoid any such nightmares, and the next best thing will be to remain extremely precautious and prepared for any unforeseen accident. Some safety measures are listed below to make your Diwali happy and prosperous:
Keep water nearby
Whenever burning firecrackers, it is important to keep safety in mind. Keep a bucket of cold water nearby so that in case of fire it can be tackled quickly and a major fire incident can be avoided. You must also dip your hand or affected body area into the water immediately if it comes in contact with naked flames or hot cracker residue.
Avoid wearing synthetic fabrics
Synthetic fabrics start shrinking and stick to skin when they come in contact with fire and cause much damage. While with organic fabrics, the damage caused to skin is less as they don’t stick. Hence it is recommended to wear cotton or other natural fabrics while burning crackers.
Apply cold water
Put your hand in running cold water in case of burn and try to avoid formation of blisters. If blisters are formed, don’t touch them as it may cause infection. Seek immediate medical attention if the burn area is large. Visit a 24hrs open hospital if the burs are.
Appropriate dressing of wound
If you accidently get a burn it is important to get a proper dressing. Dressing should not be too tight as it may restrict blood circulation to the area. It should not be too loose either as it may displace or may cause infections. Dressing should also be changed time to time to avoid bacterial infections. Several kinds of dressing are available nowadays to improve the cosmetic appearance of the scar formed. It would be best to visit an Emergency hospital nearby instead of doing it yourself.
Usually anti septic creams are applied on burn area to avoid infections. Other than this if your burn wound gets infected your doctor may recommend you oral antibiotics along with anti septic creams. Keep ointments like Betadine handy to apply immediately in case of burns.
