Health Tip: Reduce Your Risk of Hot Water Burns

Health Tip: Reduce Your Risk of Hot Water Burns

11/29/12

(HealthDay News) -- Hot water from baths or shows can pose a serious scalding hazard for you and your children.

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers these suggestions to prevent hot water burns:

  • Always test the bath water yourself before you or your child get in the tub or shower.
  • Adjust your hot water heater to the "low-medium" setting of 120 degrees.
  • Don't allow children to play with the faucets while taking a bath or shower.
  • Never use a hot steam humidifier around children. Use the cool mist variety instead.
