Author information

  • 1Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College, Giles.

Abstract

Excessive wound exudate or other bodily fluids, such as urine or sweat, can cause skin maceration to occur around a wound, which may delay healing and lead to other complications. This paper examines means of preventing maceration while ensuring a moist wound-healing environment and looks at management techniques if the condition develops.
