Despite seeming like minor injuries, skin tears can be complex wounds with the potential to significantly affect an individual’s health and cause chronic discomfort (LeBlanc 2014).

Skin tears are often misdiagnosed and underreported, and in many cases are preventable (Wounds International 2018).

What are Skin Tears?

Skin tears are acute, traumatic injuries caused by shearing, friction or blunt force wherein the layers of skin are separated. This may be a separation of the epidermis from the dermis (partial thickness) or separation of both the epidermis and dermis from underlying structures (full thickness) (RWV 2018).
