The skin is subject to injury from a variety of external and internal factors. Extremes of heat and cold; pressure, shearing, and other mechanical forces; allergens; chemicals; radiation; and excretions and secretions such as those from an ostomy or a draining wound are all potentially damaging conditions and substances that exist in the external environment. Internal factors include emaciation, drugs, altered circulation and impaired oxygen transport, altered metabolic state, and infections.
