A Nigerian medical doctor known as Okeme shared graphic photos of an eight year old girl who came for treatment in their facility because her palms were burnt by her father for stealing.
Read the doctor’s post on his Instagram page below;
An 8-year-old female child got her hands burnt by her single father who forced them over a burning flame because she was repeatedly being accused of pilfering.
She was brought to our facility with complains of pain, foul smell and inability to use hands. O/E she was febrile, and acutely ill. The palmer aspect of the hands, including regions over the thenar and hypothenar were discharging of pus and a large ulcer with ragged edges with areas of hyperpigmented tissues obviously decaying were observed.
We debrided extensively under GA, dressed and covered her up with iv antibiotics. She is presently stable and recuperating.
