Answer

Skin hygiene is an important element of further outpatient care for chronic granulomatous disease (CGD). The skin should be washed twice daily with a disinfectant soap. The fingernails should be cut short. The patient should be monitored for the results of antibacterial and antifungal prophylaxis.
