Abstract

Camouflage cream was introduced over 50 years ago to assist in the rehabilitation of severely burned pilots injured during World War II. Today, camouflage therapy can be used to conceal discoloration such as postoperative bruising and erythema. Pre and postoperative teaching regarding camouflage therapies are very important parts of the healing process, and dermatology nurses can play a vital role in the teaching and healing process.
