Getting warm? Take extra care of your skin
By Wealden Rehab 8 July 2015 693 Views No comments

With the weather warming up (isn’t it nice!), it’s so important for our patients to remember to take extra care of their skin.

Disabled people are much more vulnerable to skin damage than others. Some conditions may signify particular vulnerability such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Brain Injury

and some activities, such as smoking, may make it worse.

You can read more information on the care of skin at these webpages:
