How do most burns in children get treated?

Cool soaks, TLC. Gently wash the burned skin area daily to help remove dead skin. Many doctors prescribe silver sulfadiazine cream, but it isn't necessary unless the burn becomes infected; if that happens, call your doctor. If it's a sunburn, don't let it happen again - apply a good broad-spectrum sunscreen lotion to your children's exposed skin whenever they go out in the sun.
