Talking to children on their developmental level, minimizing television exposure, and keeping to routines are important strategies to minimize effects in children. Post-traumatic stress disorder should be considered in children who express persistent symptoms of anxiety lasting more than 1 month.

Tourniquets of digits or genitalia can cause ischemia of the distal appendage and commonly involve pieces of hair, although they can involve synthetic fibers as well. A first-line option in removing these, in the absence of significant mucous membrane proximity or significant skin breakdown, is a chemical depilatory. These products (eg Nair) use thioglycolate to break the keratin hair bonds. A recent study demonstrated breakage of all diameters of hair within 10 minutes, and recommended a 10-minute trial of application in appropriate settings before progressing to mechanical removal if this fails.
