An evidence-based neonatal skin care guideline has been available since 2001, and the 4th edition of this guideline was published in 2018. The unique properties of newborn and premature infant skin places them at risk for potential toxicity and skin injury. Knowledge of these differences can inform providers about improved and safer techniques in the areas of bathing, skin disinfectants, use of medical adhesives, prevention and treatment of diaper dermatitis.
