Is there anything that can protect the catheter site during peritoneal dialysis?

Yes. Keep it covered and without tension on the exit site, and use a antibacterial cream recommended by your nephrologist.Contact your nurse if you notice any redness or discharge.
Sterile dressing. Sterile covering can keep it clean, and paying close attention. If you dialyze while you sleep, make sure there is adequate slack. After several weeks, the cuff(s) on the catheter should be in-grown and quote secure.
