Skincare is crucial to prevent any further breakdown of the skin, in addition to improving its tolerance. The skin should be inspected and cleansed regularly. When cleansing, a PH neutral agent should be used. After washing, the skin, the skin should be patted dry and emollient used to rehydrate any dry skin. Moisturising the skin to reduce dryness may help to reduce the risk of breakdown and enhance skin health (Stephen-Haynes 2011). Prevention of skin breakdown is paramount. Barrier creams can be effective and used to prevent breakdown of intact skin and protect vulnerable skin.
