Care of the burned client with a superimposed herpes simplex infection is most challenging for pediatric nurses. The physiological and psychological trauma of the burn is added to by the presence of a stigmitizing, communicable, and chronic disease. A discussion of the epidemiology, diagnosis, and management of herpes simplex; the management of the burn wound; and the nursing care of the burned child with a superimposed herpes infection is provided to assist pediatric nurses in quality care of these clients.
