Burn wounds may become infected or heal and leave scars if not correctly treated. There is a burn unit at the Red Cross Children's Hospital in Cape Town and similar special children's burn units at the major academic hospitals in other cities. Ask your paediatrician or GP to advise you where to take your child for expert advice and treatment.
