Help for a scald
Appropriate first aid must be used as soon as possible.
This will limit the amount of damage to the skin.
1 - Cool the burn - with running cold tap water for 20 minutes
2 - Call for help - 999, 111 or local GP for advice
3 - Cover the burn - with cling film or a clean non-fluffy cloth, and make sure the patient is kept warm
