Abstract

Skin problem in patients with Chronic Kidney Failure that often appear that dry skin and most often appear on the forearm and lower extremities. Dry skin that appears in patients undergoing hemodialysis is usually due to atrophy of the sebaceous glands, impaired function of external secretions, and stratum corneum hydration disturbance. The aim of this study was to explain of the combination of cutaneus stimulation and VCO on skin moisture. Cutaneous stimulation and virgin coconut oil (VCO) was performed as a non-pharmacological treatment option to improve skin moisture. This study used quasy experiment pre-post test control group design, conducted between January – March 2018. A total of 52 patients undergoing hemodialysis divided randomly into two groups. The treatment group was given cutaneous stimulation and VCO for 4 weeks and the control group was not given cutaneous stimulation and VCO. The skin moisture assessment was performed five times, ie pre-test at week0, week1, week2, week3 and post-test at week4 using skin moisture analyzer. Giving cutaneous stimulation and VCO effective in improving skin moisture in patients undergoing dialysis seen from Wilcoxon test with p<0.05. Based on Friedman nonparametric test results, there were significant differences in skin moisture value at five measurement times (pre-test, week1, week2, week3, and post-test) p=0.000. Giving cutaneous stimulation and VCO can be used as an option to improve skin moisture in patients undergoing hemodialysis.
