How to tell when a child’s injury is serious
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.
