Resumo: A 13 month-old girl presented to our Burns Unit with a 4% circumferential, superficial partial thickness scald to her right arm. The cause of the injury was a hot tea scald, for which first aid was given. Born to consanguineous parents, she had no known co-morbidities and was up-to-date with immunisations. The burn was managed as per our standard protocol, with topical nitrofurazone cream and Mepitel® (Molnlycke Health Care) dressing, and the patient discharged home the same day to local follow-up. No prophylactic antibiotics were given
