Manage Skin Irritation Due to Handwashing and PPE
COVID-19 will raise questions about how to manage skin irritation from handwashing and personal protective equipment (masks, etc).
Help patients and colleagues limit dryness, itching, and redness...on the hands, face, and behind the ears.
Advise sticking with fragrance- and dye-free soaps, sanitizers, and moisturizers. Point out that "unscented" products are NOT "fragrance-free"...they often have irritating additives to MASK scents.
