The use of skin barrier films in patients with moisture lesions: clinical evaluation of LBF No Sting Barrier FilmA clinical guide to tissue damage associated with excessive moisture and evaluation of the use of LBF No Sting Barrier Film using a case-study approach.

The damage due to excessive moisture of the skin, whether from acute or chronic wound exudate, urinary or faecal incontinence or perspiration, can be considerable and in severe cases, can result in the development of a moisture lesion. They cause pain, discomfort and are distressing. It is important for clinicians to diagnose correctly and treat locally the cause of skin damage as well as promote appropriate strategies to keep patients' skin healthy. The use of a barrier film can protect the skin and enable the healthcare professional to provide comprehensive care for the patient.
