Try collagen sheets or gels , they are available form various brands such as intrasite form 3M . They can reduce the size of raw area and then prepare for skin grafting . As it is a small child it's better to approach a skin bank rather than the child's own skin for grafts .

Burn reconstruction procedures are used to cover wounds and restore function and esthetics. Reconstruction can be completed in phases, depending on severity of burn scar, contracture, structure, and donor tissue availability. The surgical procedures used in burn reconstruction include: ●Primary closure ●Excision and skin grafting ●Dermal regeneration templates (skin substitutes) ●Tissue expansion ●Tissue transfer: Local, regional, distant, and free flaps Reconstructive procedures of ascending complexity may be required depending on the nature of the area to be reconstructed and the tissue defect.

Burn wound healing is a dynamic process, and local management may vary with the evolving clinical picture. Acute burn wounds should, if possible, be evaluated and treated by an experienced burn care provider. Nonoperative management includes cleansing, debridement, topical antimicrobial drugs, and dressing changes. This approach is ideal for patients with partial-thickness burns and as the initial approach for patients with deep second-degree burns and full-thickness burns.
