Abstract

Epidermolysis bullosa is a rare genetic skin fragility disorder, with several types of varying severity. While research is progressing towards effective treatments, management remains symptomatic. One of the most distressing symptoms is pain, which may be multifactorial in origin. This article focuses on managing procedural pain during dressing changes and includes a case study.
