A person who is exposed to boiling liquid or hot steam even for a very short period is liable to suffer a severe burn injury. Boiling water, cooking oil, or hot steam that comes into contact with the skin for as little as three seconds can cause debilitating wounds that may require the use of skin grafts to correct. Because children are the most common victims of scalding, these injuries are usually accidental and generally occur in the bathroom or kitchen. Hot liquid being tipped from the stove or scalding bath water are usually the result of poor supervision.
