A patients blistering disorder has resulted in the formation of multiple lesions in the patients mouth. What intervention should be included in the patients plan of care?

A hypertonic solution would be likely to cause pain and further skin disruption. Meticulous mouth care should be provided and there is no reason to provide nutrition parenterally.
