A patient has received a diagnosis of irritant contact dermatitis. What action should the nurse prioritize in the patients subsequent care?

Answer Explanation: A focus of care for patients with irritant contact dermatitis is identifying and avoiding the offending agent. Immunosuppressants are not used to treat eczema and wound care is not normally required, except in cases of open lesions. Poor hygiene has no correlation with contact dermatitis.
