Call this skin-protection category code: Mother Touch.
Definition: Mother Touch coding posits skin as a medium of communication between a mother and her child or children.
Notes on this code: Skin protection not about health, in this coding. A mother’s love is communicated via the skin, so the purpose of skin protection is to keep the lines of mother-child communication open.
