My friend works in a kindergarten and is now facing a trial on charges of neglect involving the kid whom she tried to help after accidentally being burnt although she came to his rescue and followed the procedure in such cases. How to treat third degree chemical burn in kids?

I am sorry to hear that, but those situations are very tricky and our reactions are often unpredictable. However, there are some general rules one should follow somehow. First, you MUST contact emergency medical care, then follow these steps until medical personnel arrive: 1. Keep your child lying down with the burned area elevated. 2. Follow the instructions for first-degree burns. 3. Remove all jewelry and clothing from around the burn (in case there's any swelling after the injury), except for clothing that's stuck to the skin. If you're having difficulty removing clothing, you may need to cut it off or wait until medical assistance arrives. 4. Do not break any blisters. 5. Apply cool water over the area for at least 3 to 5 minutes, then cover the area with a clean white cloth or sheet until help arrives.
