Hey I'm Jessica and I'm a newbie on this site. I found it while I was looking for tips on my daughter and found it useful. now I have a situation which I'm desperate on some advice on what to do. My 22 month old just burned her finger and finger nail on the stove top while I looked away. Her finger nail, were the rings of the stove touched turned black and her finger also turned black like waxy were it got burned. I'm not sure what to do, should I take her to the ER? Pleease, Heelp!! I'm so desperate and nervous I dont know what to do, ugh!

My son was burned when he was 18 months old. They told us at the burn center that when extremities are burned in a young child that they should receive emergency care immediately. If you are questioning what to do go to the ER or call 911. Worst case they will send you home. <3

Things like this really can't be diagnosed over the internet without pictures.  I agree with above poster--go to the ER or an urgent care clinic (just in case).

Thanks a lot for y'alls support and consideration! I took her in the ER and they said it was just a first degree burn. It just got her outer skin, he prescribed her some ointment to rub on and said to follow up with her pediatrician. Today she woke up with out even remembering her finger burn, lol.

Well thank goodness it wasn't worse, although I'm sure it was a pain going to the ER. It's always good to know it wasn't worse. :-)

Hi and Welcome to Mothering! 

 

I'm glad you got a quick response and that you did take your daughter to the ER.  Glad she is doing well today! :)

 

You might check out our Family Safety section for some ideas on child proofing your stove area.  I know I needed some extra input on a couple areas in my house.  Toddlers are fast and clever!! :lol
