The skin is the largest organ of the body. Acting as a barrier from the outside world, it keeps the body protected. Injuries can damage this protective layer, leading to wounds, scarring and potential risks such as infection. Wound care is of the utmost importance following a burn, surgery or injury to limit the chance of infection and preserve the skins function.
