Dealing with the effects of seasonal changes on the skin
Skin reactions and insect bites associated with the spring and summer months are commonly seen in community settings. In this article, the author provides an overview of the most common skin reactions, including skin cancers, that can occur through increased exposure to the sun, as well as highlighting management techniques for community nurses faced with patients who have seasonal-associated skin complaints. With prevention being key, particularly where melanoma are concerned, this article provides a useful source of information for community nurses dealing with skin problems at this time of year.
