My cast got wet, what do I do?
A cast is a hard splint that completely surrounds part of an injured arm or leg, placed in the best position to heal. The purpose of the cast is to prevent all movement and protect a broken bone or torn ligament until it heals. The inner layer of the cast is a cotton pad to protect the skin. The splint can be made of plaster or fiberglass.

And if your child is truly terrified that the patch will fall off, you may want to reconsider using an aerosol patch from the start.

I have a cast and it burns
Burn injuries result from fires, flames, hot liquids or vapors, contact with hot objects or hot substances such as grease or tar, chemicals or electricity. When evaluating a burn injury, physicians look at two factors: the depth of the burn and its extent, which is measured as a percentage of the body surface area. The depth of the burn depends on how hot the cause of the burn was, the amount of time the affected area was in contact with the cause of the burn, and the thickness of the skin in the affected area. Burn injuries fall into three categories:
There are many advanced products for the care of burn wounds. These products do not require daily dressing changes and can be left on until the wound heals. This can make pain control much easier and reduce anxiety about wound care. These types of products include impregnated gauze, foam, honey and silver bandages. Many of the bandages available today are combinations of these categories. There are many different commercial brands. The professional team treating your burn will determine the most appropriate product to use. They will also decide when to apply it and when to remove it.
