Prolonged or continuous exposure to moisture can disrupt the skin’s barrier properties and is known as moisture-associated skin damage (MASD) (Young, 2017). It can cause pain and discomfort to patients and significantly reduce their quality of life (Young, 2017). There are four distinct conditions that fall under the umbrella of MASD: incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD), periwound and peristomal moistureassociated dermatitis and intertriginous dermatitis (Parnham et al, 2020).
