You do not mention how your nephew was burnt. I assume he was burnt by hot water as he was only kept in hospital for a short time. Hot water burns if not particularly deep usually heal well in children. It is difficult to give you a time frame as this depends on the extent of the area that has been burnt.The bandages are probably sticking to his burn wounds which is painful when the bandages are removed. What concerns me is that his burns may be deeper than originally diagnosed at the hospital. It would be best to take him back there for an opinion.You can use Vermox syrup for worms.
