Benefits of wet wrapping

Wet wrapping is a therapy used in the treatment of atopic eczema, and involves the use of an emollient under a garment. This can be done using the emollient Epaderm™ Ointment together with Tubifast Gloves.

An emollient is applied to the affected skin, which is then covered with dampened Tubifast Gloves. Working together, the emollient and the damp layer keep the skin hydrated and moist, and help reduce inflammation1.

The damp Tubifast Gloves also act as a retaining layer, ensuring that the emollient stays in contact with the skin. The damp layer also cools and soothes the skin, helping to reduce itching2.

A second, dry pair of Tubifast Gloves are then applied, which keep the patient’s clothing dry and prevents further scratching from aggravating the skin and causing potential injury. Dry wrapping is a similar process to wet wrapping. An emollient is applied to the affected skin, which is then covered with a single, dry pair of Tubifast Gloves.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Please note: It is recommended that Tubifast Gloves with 2-Way Stretch Technology are sized according to dimensions as well as age. If in any doubt regarding the selection of size, the next largest size should be chosen.
