According to the studies were included in the review, peristomal skin problems represent one of the most common complications and can emerge as irritant dermatitis, peristomal skin irritation, allergic dermatitis, mechanical trauma and infection, The most common skin problems are dermatitis, pseudovarianosis lesions, mechanical injury, folliculitis, fungal infection, uric acid crystals and bleeding due to caput medusa. The results of this study provide clinical data for nurses and physicians that are all caregivers about which problems may arise from peristomal skin integrity after the surgical procedure.
