Warming patches are self-heating heat emitters that are often used to keep you warm in cold weather. However, if not used correctly, warming pads can cause low-temperature burns and damage to the skin. In this article, we will offer two suggestions to help you avoid causing hypothermic burns when using heating pads.

  1. Control the use time of heating pads
    The heating temperature of heating pads is relatively low, but applying them to the same area for a long period of time may also lead to low temperature burns. Therefore, it is recommended that when using warm stickers, do not stick them on the same part for a long time, especially on the parts with thin skin. You can change the position appropriately to avoid a certain part of the skin being heated for a long time.
  2. Don’t use warming pads while sleeping
    It is very dangerous to use warm stickers while sleeping, because people’s ability to perceive and regulate temperature decreases during sleep. If warm patches are applied to the skin for a long period of time, it may lead to low-temperature burns. Therefore, it is advisable to remove the warming pads when using them, especially when sleeping.

Controlling the duration of use of warming pads and avoiding the use of warming pads at bedtime are two important pieces of advice that can help you avoid hypothermic burns when using warming pads. At the same time, we should also understand the proper use of warming pads and precautions to ensure their safe and stable use.
