If there’s one thing kids are good at, it’s getting scraped up.

While bumps, bruises, sprains and strains are a part of how children play, how can a parent tell when their child’s injury needs more than just a bandage?

One sign that a wound is severe is if there isn’t noticeable improvements in a few days, according to doctors.

When it comes to sprains, the pain can be worse than what a parent thinks, health officials said.

This is because kids are more likely to actually fracture something rather than sprain it due to their ligaments being stronger than their bones.
