Abstract

Maintaining a clean perianal area is an attempt to prevent and treat diaper dermatitis. The purpose of cleaning
the perianal area is to prevent irritation. The practice of cleaning the perianal area is done by considering
the physiology of the skin such as, normal flora, bacteria, and skin pH. Cleaning the perianal area can use
water and a soft cloth without rubbing the skin hard. The purpose of applying evidence based in nursing
practice is to identify the effect of perianal care by using water against diaper dermatitis with skin integrity
issues. Search evidence of nursing practice used the PICO analysis. Thirty-four toddlers were divided into
two groups: the intervention group (n = 17) and the control group (n = 17). The analysis used was Wilcoxon,
and Mann-Whitney test. There was no significant difference in diaper dermatitis score in the intervention
group and control group (?> 0.05). Cleaning the perianal area using water and tissues can be used to prevent
and treat diaper dermatitis.
