MASD can be painful and costly

The best way to prevent skin damage caused by prolonged exposure to moisture is to follow a comprehensive skin and wound care strategy designed to help keep patients safe.

• Routinely monitor areas of the skin where there’s moisture and warmth, such as skinfolds. Prevent moisture buildup by keeping the area dry.

• Manage wound exudate with dressings chosen for proper absorbency.

• Apply a skin protectant or barrier film to the skin when appropriate.
