I posted about my sons father taking him to the beach and my son coming home EXTREAMLY burnt...
How do i know if he is dehydrated? Hes still peeing like a race horse but his eyes look kinda sunk in sorta (saids my sister).
Hes drinking milk and gatoraid too. But could it just be going right through him?
I dont want to put him through going to the ER if im just panicking but i also have never had to deal with something like this before.
It never fails that when my kids get sick or i think they may need to see a dr that its a holiday and the office is closed!

Kids need to drink water especially if they are at risk of dehydration. Milk can cause constipation and digestive problems. Gatoraid can upset electrolyte imbalance. Dehydration isn't the issue with sunburn. There is no need to worry about dehydration and going to the ER. What is the problem is the burn itself. You have the pain and damage to the skin. The skin can get infected if there is blisters. Just a few childhood burn greatly increase the risk of the deadly kind of skin cancer. This kind of cancer can hit even in late teens or young adults.
Take pictures and document the burn if there is a problem with the father not taking adequate care of the children.
