PAIN MANAGEMENT OF NEWBORN WITH EPIDERMOLYSIS BULLOSA FOR WOUND DRESSING: A CASE REPORT
Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a genetic disease characterized by blisters on the skin and mucous membranes as a result of mechanical fragility. There are four types of EB: simplex (EBS), junctional (JEB), dystrophic forms (DEB), and Kindler syndrome. Simple analgesics such as paracetamol and ibuprofen in EB are also sufficient to reduce pain. Opioids and anxiolytics are necessary for severe pain during wound dressings. In this report, a case of JEB and its pain management at home during dressing by an anesthesist is presented.
