Mother Cautions Parents on Applying Aerosol Sunscreen on Little Kids after Traumatic Ordeal
5It took her to the emergency instead
After a few hours, Rebecca was horrified to see a rash creeping across her daughter’s face. She was worried and felt she needed to make a trip to emergency. She waited till next morning and then took her child to ER. By now there was severe blistering and swelling on the child’s face. Rebecca was dismayed when she was told that her child was suffering 2nd degree burns.
6Doctors asked her to see dermatologist
The doctors in the ER admitted that since Kayla‘s face was so badly swollen, it was difficult to make definite diagnosis and they felt it would be better for her to consult a pediatric dermatologist.
7Rebecca couldn’t understand how it happened
Rebecca was dumbfounded. How on earth her child could have burnt herself and that certainly wasn’t possible from the sun even without sunscreen. Moreover the cream given to her earlier by a doctor made things worse. Rebecca was asked to take the child to a dermatologist who would be more professionally equipped to solve the puzzle. She was told that the child was suffering from caustic burns caused by sunscreen. Imagine that.
8She got caustic burns from aerosol sunscreen
A caustic burn is a chemical burn that can affect the skin and even internal organs. It can affect both your skin and internal organs.
