Traditionally peristomal skin complications are managed by clinical nurse specialists (CNS) with advanced knowledge related to the assessment and management of stoma care (NSWOCs, WOCNs, ETNs, SCNs). However, given the complex nature of the peristomal skin and the variety of potential skin-related issues, it is imperative for dermatologists to continue their pivotal role in the care of individuals with peristomal skin issues. As the recognized specialists of skin conditions, dermatologists must be cognizant of the unique challenges in managing peristomal skin complications and advocate for this vulnerable population. This chapter focuses on local peristomal cutaneous manifestations and peristomal skin complications and their management.
