My 1 year old touched the hot oven!
Last night I thought my husband was holding my 1 year old son while I was checking on some steaks I was broiling for dinner. Apparently not. Next thing I know my husband is snatching up my son and he's crying. We rushed him into the bathroom and ran cold water over his hands. He was crying and I checked his hands and they were red, but I assumed that they were red from the cold water. I was almost bed time, so I gave him some tylenol and put him to bed.
When he woke up this morning he had a blister (about the size of a quarter) on one of his palms. It's the same as if you or I would touch something hot. Nothing too extreme, and it doens't seem to be bothering him too much (unless something touches it directly). I've been giving him some tylenol, and I looked online and it says that we don't need direct medical attention unless it looks infected. My question is, do I need to wrap it? I don't think he would leave anything on it. I'm just a little worried... I feel so terrible. I should never have let this happen!
