hello all, i have just picked lo up from school and he has a very red face, hands, back of neck. not very bad but would say mild sunburn. my instinct is to write it as a existing injury ( i never had him yest) but wanted to check this is right? never had a sunburn lo before. dad did mention this morning grandma had him in sun yest bit too much.

thank you

Think I would write up as an existing injury but also ring parents and tell them now

Poor little chap but I agree with Christine, write it up as an existing injury.

Definitely write it as an existing injury, and let the parents know asap.

thank you all, did text parents straight away and have now written up. x

Glad you have that sorted. :)

I would also definitely write it up as an existing injury as it's a burn. You would write up a scald so just do it in the same way. :)
