Dermatologist explains wound care for patients with epidermolysis bullosa

Advanced Tissue SmartBrief | Sep 17, 2014

Wounds in patients with epidermolysis bullosa can be difficult to heal and might require a regimen of tetracycline in addition to alternating topical antimicrobials to avoid resistance, says Elena Pope, who chairs the dermatology section in the Division of Pediatric Medicine at Toronto's Hospital for Sick Children. Fluid in blisters should be released, but the roof of the blister should be kept intact, Pope says. Dressings should be nonstick and chosen based on the degree of exudate and critical colonization, Pope says. Modern Medicine (09/10)
