PPE and medical supplies


Protecting your skin while using PPE


The Academy has developed guidance in Skin Protection Guidelines for Using PPE (PDF) to help dermatologists and other health care professionals prevent and treat conditions associated with prolonged use of PPE and other protective measures. You can also refer to a convenient infographic on Skin Care for Health Workers during COVID-19 (PDF) that covers the same information. The guidelines and infographic address preventing dermatitis caused by frequent hand washing, preventing skin injury from wearing N95 respirator masks and surgical masks, and more. Share these resources with staff to encourage best practices.

The AAD offers members a buying program that negotiates lower prices on medical supplies, including PPE.
