  • Do not rupture the blisters. Rupturing them prematurely increases risk of infection and scarring. If the child is under 8 you should consult your Dr. If they are near the eyes, any age, consult the Dr. Most treatments for burns are perscription only. I would be hesitant to use anything on the face not perscribed. Make sure the child is drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated.
