Burn is a painful and horrifying incident and children are mostly the victims. Common first aid responses in Bangladesh are to apply raw egg or rotten parts of banana tree to the wound, paste the area with mud or soak the wound continuously with water. To halt this devastatinghealth issue, a national strategy and programme for burn prevention must be developed.
