Abstract Background: Ashy dermatosis (AD) and lichen planus pigmentosus (LPP) are both acquired macular pigmentation of uncertain aetiology. Despite the controversy surrounding their entities, recent global consensus has concluded that they are 2 different diseases with distinct clinical presentations. Nevertheless, there are limited data on their histopathological comparisons. Objective: To evaluate the differences in histopathological findings between AD and LPP. Methods: Electronic records and photographs of patients with the diagnosis of AD or LPP from January 2008 to December 2018 were retrospective...

Abstract In this symposium, we present a novel breathable protective ointment (BPO) formulation developed at the University of Shizuoka for the prevention of moisture-associated skin damage (MASD) intended for use in healthcare settings. MASD occurs when moisture is in constant contact with the skin for prolonged periods of time, causing degradation of the skin barrier. Exposure to physical or chemical stimuli in addition to moisture may lead to different types of moisture-associated dermatitis such as incontinence-associated or periwound dermatitis. Another type of moisture-associated dermatitis, diaper dermatiti...

Abstract An estimated 14 million adults experience incontinence in England alone, and this population is at a very high risk of developing incontinence-associated dermatitis (IAD). The risk associated with developing IAD is further increased among older adults, due to the effects of the ageing process, which leave the skin thinner and more fragile. Understanding the causative factors of IAD in addition to understanding the impact of IAD on the skin enable the clinician to make informed choices regarding treatment, management and prevention. Additionally, understanding the association between IAD and pressure ulcer...
