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 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)
