Abstract

The Japanese Dermatological Association prepared the clinical guidelines for the “Wound, pressure ulcer and burn guidelines”, second edition, focusing on treatments. Among them, “Guidelines for wounds in general” is intended to provide the knowledge necessary to heal wounds, without focusing on particular disorders. It informs the basic principles of wound treatment, before explanations are provided in individual chapters of the guidelines. We updated all sections by collecting references published since the publication of the first edition. In particular, we included new wound dressings and topical medications. Additionally, we added “Question 6: How should wound-related pain be considered, and what should be done to control it?” as a new section addressing wound pain, which was not included in the first edition.
