A pediatric group practice is issuing a warning about a common Crayola product after one of their patients experienced severe burns.

Premiere Pediatrics and Teens, based in Utah, posted a Facebook update that has quickly gone viral, and once you see the photographs, it's not hard to tell why. The photos show a small child's hand, with the skin peeling off and angry red burns on the child's fingertips.

According to the post, the burns are a result of a common Crayola product. The pediatricians describe the circumstances they say led to the injuries:

"He had used Crayola Bathtub Fingerpaint Soap and it BURNED his hands. Luckily only his hands. We're talking layers of skin gone! We have permission to share. She has attempted to contact the company 3 times with no reply. She purchased it at Wal-Mart but it’s sold everywhere. Most Amazon reviews are great but we found a ton of bad ones with kids having terrible rashes or more burns."

We conducted a search of Amazon that revealed both positive and negative reviews of Crayola Bathtub Fingerpaint Soap. We found many of the bad reviews centered on the ability of the product to stain bathtubs and grout.

Has your child used this product? What was your experience?
