Care at home after laser treatment
Quiet activities today with close supervision. Normal activities tomorrow. Check with the physician regarding when your child can resume physical activities.
Apply Bacitracin ointment on the treated area 2 times a day for 10 days. Avoid direct exposure to the sun for 2 months. Apply sunscreen lotion (SPF 30) for protection against exposure to the sun. The bruising appearance will disappear within 10 days.
For pain, give Acetaminophen (Tylenol or Tempra) every 4 hours as needed.
