Abstract
Information on pressure sores and how to deal with them. In an individual with spina bifida some of the nerves do not develop properly, which results in little or no sensation in some areas of the skin. Without the warning of discomfort or pain from heat, cold, sharp objects, pressure, scrapes or excessive moisture an individual will be unaware of damage to their skin. A sore may develop quite quickly and can worsen rapidly if not attended to properly. Children need to learn the importance of personal hygiene to their overall well being. Parents should begin teaching skin care to their child at an early age, until their routine becomes second nature: * Perform regular self checks of the skin, using a hand held mirror to view those areas not easily seen with the eyes. * Keep skin clean and dry. Moisture and chemicals from urine, bowel material or sweat can damage the skin if left there too long. * Eat nutritious foods and drink plenty of fluids to keep the body and skin healthy.
