A mum's warning to other parents has gone viral online. Jamie Prescott wrote the post on her Facebook page where it has since been shared thousands of times.

"For any parents who have children, please, please sit them down and show them these pictures..." her post began.

"The pictures below are that of my Year 10 daughter's arm THREE WEEKS ON which may still as yet require a skin graft..."
