It has several vital functions, which include; immune function, temperature regulation, sensation and vitamin production. Skin is a dynamic organ in a constant state of change; cells of the outer layers continuously shed and are replaced by inner cells moving to the surface. These guidelines have been developed by a range of clinicians who treat children with skin disorders, breakdowns and wounds; they reflect current research and evidence based expert opinion.
