White phosphorous burns are considerably more complex than a typical burn from a fire. In his TikTok and Instagram video tutorial which has over 3 million views so far on social media, Kieram explains the actions someone must take immediately to prevent further injury and death.
"Firstly, dumping water on it only pauses the burn, as soon as the water washes away, the chemical reacts with the air and it re-ignites itself. Secondly, it is sticky waxy substance, so it is hard to get off. Thirdly, it burns holes straight through the flesh. And lastly, the phosphorous chemical gets into the blood stream, so even after the burns are over, it is possible to have a heart attack, damaged liver, kidneys and more.
With over 9000 comments, viewers responded with gratitude, one commenting, "… Thank you for posting this. This is so terrible people need to know this but thank you for spreading helpful information".
Kieram's white phosphorous video builds upon his prior burn treatment videos, one of which has been viewed over 40 million times across social media.
