Xerosis, also known as dry skin, is characterized by dull and flaky areas of skin. It is most commonly found on the arms and legs, but can also appear on the trunk of the body.
Xerosis (dry skin) can be treated on-site. The most common methods to treat xerosis are applying moisturizers and adjusting the bathing routine. Your facility’s dermatological specialist will guide your nursing staff accordingly.
