Each year, many people suffer short- and long-term pain from a contact burn: when your skin comes in contact with a hot object. One national reporting system indicates roughly 70,000 people went to a hospital emergency department because of contact burns in 2018, and of this number almost one third were children under the age of 5. In many cases, the burns are preventable if simple steps, some precautions and common sense are followed.

• Supervise children around hot objects at all times.
