Moisture-associated skin damage Made EasyTerms such as moisture lesions, perineal dermatitis, diaper dermatitis or incontinence associated dermatitis describe some of the conditions traditionally considered to be a specific problem of continence care. The term moisture-associated skin damage has been introduced to cover the range of skin problems that occur due to prolonged exposure to wound exudate, faecal and/or urinary incontinence and perspiration. It is important for clinicians to assess, correctly diagnose and to treat the cause of the skin damage locally, as well as promote appropriate skin care and continence regimens to keep the patient’s skin clean and dry. This Made Easy will help clinicians identify the causes of skin damage and determine the appropriate treatment path.
