The article discusses methods in dealing with skin breakdowns that are associated with spinal-cord injury. Threats to the skin increase every year after injury. Skin breakdowns remain as the leading complications encountered by people with SCI. Keeping the body well-hydrated is crucial to the health of the skin. Waxing and the use of heating pads is discouraged as it may damage the skin. Skin-care routine must also be adjusted according to one's age and need.
