Have you suffered burns?
Although burns are commonly caused by fires breaking out, sometimes people can suffer burns if they are hurt by a hot drink or boiling liquids. If, for example, you’re eating out in a restaurant and a waiter accidentally spills hot food or drink on you, you could suffer a serious injury as a result.
Whilst most food won’t cause a serious burn if it’s dropped on you in a café or restaurant, if a hot liquid was to be spilled on you, you could suffer a burn as a result, especially if it was to hit your bare skin, rather than your clothes.
If you’ve been hurt in this way, you may need to seek immediate medical help and, in some cases, patients are required to undergo skin grafts in a bid to repair the damage. As burns can sometimes cause scarring, people can feel very self-conscious after suffering this type of injury, particularly if the burn is visible.
If you’ve suffered a burn and you’re struggling to deal with the emotional after effects of the injury, you may want to seek help in the form of counselling. Many patients find that this form of therapy can help them to accept their injuries and move forward without it holding them back.
