Accidents can happen at any time. Accidents can happen everywhere, and they don't have to involve a large number of people. When scalded with hot water, for example. It should be mentioned that scalded skin should not be taken lightly. The skin becomes inflamed and blistered as a result. Additionally, scalding hot water can cause skin trauma and life-threatening burns. As a result, if you get scalded, do the following lists as first aid. When you are accidentally scalded by hot water, the first thing you should do is run cold water (4-15 degrees Celsius) over the body part that was scalded. It can be washed in the bathroom or sink using water from the stream or a scoop. Perform for 20 seconds. Body parts that have been scalded by hot water should be washed under running water. The goal is to keep the wound from being infected by a high body temperature. Remove the clothing that is on the scalded body area after flushing it with cool running water (if that part is wearing clothes). Do not let other objects on the burn. When removing clothes, do so slowly so as not to damage the skin more. Next, treatment of scalded wounds depends on the severity of the wound. Do not put toothpaste or butter on the scalded skin. It is better to use aloe vera. Next, do not break the blistered skin often, the scalded skin becomes blistered and forms bubbles. Avoid touching it too often, let alone breaking the blister. Doing so will damage the skin and increase the risk of infection. Lastly, take painkillers. If the wound scalded with hot water is very painful, you can take pain medication. However, you have to make sure that it is safe for you to take these medications. It's best to consult your doctor before taking painkillers. In addition, follow the correct way of using it so that the medicine works and the scalded wound subsides.
When a patient is sick, one way to recover is to take medication. However, taking medication is a problem that affects not only children but also some adults. Capsules are typically harder to swallow than pills or tablets. Because this medication is lighter than water, it is more likely to float in the mouth before being swallowed. However, the tablet can be difficult to swallow because the bitter taste of the medicine becomes stronger when exposed to water, which causes most patients to become nauseous and therefore not swallow the medicine. Some of the reasons why people can't swallow medicine are due to a fear of choking, which causes the throat to tighten and narrow when the medicine is swallowed. Other causes include a dry mouth, trouble swallowing, or dysphagia, which is usually caused by a stroke or nerve disorders. People who have trouble swallowing pills or capsules may try cutting the medicine into little pieces, dividing the tablet, or opening the capsule to make it easier to swallow. This strategy, however, is incorrect since it can occasionally interfere with medication. Before cutting tablets or opening capsules, consult with a doctor. If required, request alternate, easier-to-swallow versions of identical medications, such as syrup. So, it is important to choose and understand the types of medicines that can be swallowed easily, especially for patients. In addition to avoiding choking when swallowing medicine, this can also be a tip so that in the future you can take medicine more easily. You can also write about the conditions where you are having difficulties taking some specific medicine on your medication list notes.

It is necessary to take medicines in the correct and simple manner so that the medicine consumed can be swallowed without causing discomfort to the patient. Here are some suggestions for making the medicine easier to swallow: First, drink plenty of water. People who have trouble swallowing medicines may benefit from drinking plenty of water. The trick is to drink plenty of water before swallowing the pill or capsule. Second, a pressed bottle should be used. This strategy is better for swallowing pills or tablets rather than capsules. Because the capsule is lighter than water, it is more likely to become trapped in the mouth. Next, lean forward. Posture can also contribute to the easier taking of the medicine. Try to lean forward when taking the pill. Next, use soft foods to assist you in swallowing the medicine. Soft foods, in addition to drinking plenty of water, can make it simpler to take medication. To trick your brain into focusing on the medicine, eat jam, pudding, mashed bananas, mashed avocado, or other soft foods. In your mouth, place a spoonful of soft food, then a tablet or capsule in the middle. Then, swallow the soft food along with the medicine at the same time. Keep in mind that forms of soft foods that do not affect medicine should be discussed with a pharmacist or doctor. The reason for this is that when certain drugs are mixed with particular foods, their effectiveness is decreased. So, here are some suggestions for making it easy for patients to take their medications. It should be mentioned that in a process like the one described above, supervision is necessary because if the patient chokes, at least there is someone who can help.
