Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Regarding the minor burns your baby suffered. I request you take her to the doctor. If she is not properly vaccinated she may require a tetanus toxoid.

Never open the blisters after burns.

It is good to hear that you immediately kept the fingers under tap water. This is a good first aid measure.

Regarding your lump a physical examination is required to arrive at a diagnosis.

Hope this helps.
Take care.

Hi ,
Thank you for your query.
You need not see a doctor for your child now.
Consult an orthopedic for the lesion in your knee and the back.
I don't think there is much reason to worry but still get it checked out.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.
