The skin disorders are derived in most cases continuous injuries by external factors that have how responses the loss of epidermal lipids by the effect of moisture, derived of changes in skin pH (alkalinization), an increased coefficient of friction (denudation) and the imbalance of the saprophytic flora of the skin, give how a result an increase to the irritative processes and the fungal and bacterian infections in the area exposed to moisture.
