Abstract

Erythema around catheter exit-site in peritoneal dialysis patients occurs usually due to exit-site infections, but also rarely develops due to noninfectious causes. Absence of purulent drainage, pain or edema, and characteristic appearance of lesion with negative culture results are supporting findings for irritant contact dermatitis.  Here we discussed development of irritant contact dermatitis around catheter exit-site due to misuse of nitrofurazone in peritoneal dialysis patients. Nitrofurazone should be avoided in exit-site care due to its irritant potential.
