The nurse teaches a patient to apply an emollient to healing burn wounds several times a day. Which rationale should the nurse offer for this instruction? (Select all that apply.)
1. "This will help keep your skin moist."
2. "You do not have as many sebaceous glands as you did before the injury."
3. "If you use this lotion, you will not need soap, which can be drying."
4. "Emollients will protect your skin from shearing pressures while you are in bed."
5. "This lotion will protect your skin from the sun."

The answer is 1, 2
Rationales:
1. Emollients help to moisten the skin.
2. Burns result in the destruction of subcutaneous structures, including sebaceous glands.
3. The patient still needs to wash the skin with mild soap and water daily.
4. Shearing forces are avoided by positioning, not by application of lotions.
5. Emollients generally do not provide sun protection. The patient should avoid sun exposure by wearing clothing over the burned area.
