When to Call Your Child's Physician

It is important to contact your child's physician in the following situations:

  • If your child is not eating or drinking well
  • If there is antisocial or disruptive behavior at home or school
  • If there are signs of infection (healing burn areas change and become red, warm, swollen, extremely tender, and have a foul odor)
  • If there is uncontrollable itching
  • If the scar cracks open or splits
  • If a contracture occurs
  • If your child's temperature is greater than 101.5 F rectally or by mouth
  • If it appears that the dressing changes are painful for your child (you may want to discuss pain medication with your physician)
