Summer is a good time for children to play. Children who are naturally lively like to run around. They are very easy to bump into their hands and feet. Here are several kinds of accident injuries with high frequency in summer. Parents should take care to keep children away from injury and take good protective measures.

1, sunburn

We often say that babies have water-like skin, yes, their skin is water-rich, which means that the baby’s skin is more vulnerable to sunburn. If they are really sunburned, the chances of skin cancer will increase in the future.

Emergency treatment: let children avoid sunlight and replenish their skin as soon as possible. A warm bath in a well ventilated room can make children feel better. If he has wrinkles or blisters on his skin, you will take him to see a doctor.

How to prevent: the easiest way is to smear sunscreen every day. Hats and sunglasses also have a protective effect. Even so, babies should try to minimize the chance of direct sunlight exposure.

2, dehydration

If the weather is very hot, children are also dehydrated. Infants’body heat dissipation function is worse than that of teenagers or adults. If children appear to be very depressed, restless or even comatose, they may be dehydrated, and some children may vomit or have abdominal pain. The dehydration of infants is characterized by shortness of breath, dry eyes and hollow skin.

Emergency treatment: If a child over two years of age is dehydrated, let him drink a glass of water immediately and find ways to cool his body. Children under two years of age are dehydrated and can take oral electrolytes. If staying in a cool place and drinking water does not improve the child, or if he has vomiting, take him to a doctor immediately.

How to prevent it: The first thing a child wakes up every morning is to drink a glass of water first, and remind him to drink water regularly throughout the day. Boiled water is the best. Juice or lemonade is also good. It is best not to drink caffeinated beverages.

3, foot injuries

In hot summer, children always like to play barefoot, or often wear sandals with bare toes, and their feet are very vulnerable to injury.

Emergency treatment: If the child’s foot or toe is cut by glass, wash the wound quickly and bandage it well. If serious, change the bandage frequently. In the next few days, watch for signs of infection such as redness, loose or flowing water. Serious foot injuries, if necessary, should also be given a tetanus prevention.
