THIS ECZEMA TREATMENT ALLOWS SKIN TO HEAL
Eczema scratch mitten sleeves are a great natural eczema treatment for healing eczema in children. They break the itch-scratch cycle which is one of the most distressing factors for both you and your baby or child with eczema. The itch-scratch cycle occurs when the skin is damaged. Allowing moisture to evaporate and cells to shrink, causing cracks. Allergens and irritants can get in, triggering the skin to release certain chemicals that make the skin unbearably itchy. When this itch is scratched, more chemicals are released and the skin feels even itchier and the vicious cycle continues. The eczema scratch mittens can be used alongside your current eczema rouine (including wet wrapping) as suggested by your healthcare professional.
SILK MITTENS MAY REDUCE ABRASION
When flipped to closed, the smooth silk mitten further reduces abrasion from rubbing further minimising damage to skin, while the bamboo fabric with its elastane has been sourced especially for its low abrasion, natural breathability and exceptional wicking (drying) properties, all important features of clothing for eczema treatment.
BAMBOO FABRIC BENEFITS
Bamboo is the perfect fabric for eczema clothing, providing a natural treatment for your child with eczema or other sensitive skin conditions. The research suggests it:
- is a hypoallergenic natural fibre, which will not irritate already sensitive skin
- its fibres expand when warm to let skin breathe, and contract when cool to trap heat close to the body, so it will keep your child’s body temperature regulated and prevent additional itching from overheating, but also keep them warm in the colder months
- has natural antibacterial properties which will not aggravate skin prone to infection
- is a highly durable, absorbent fabric that dries quickly, meaning you can wash & dry your mittens quickly and easily
- will provide dry protection to help stop thumb sucking and damage this causes to skin
Eczema Scratch Mittens are made of a bamboo/elastane blend. This gives them the extra softness of bamboo combined with a small amount of elastane, allowing them to stretch a little for comfort while your child is moving around.
TRENDY GENDER NEUTRAL GREY COMPLEMENTS ANY WARDROBE

Choosing the right size:
To make sure you recieve the right size eczema scratch mittens for your child, please calculate the wingspan using the chart below. To calculate your child’s wingspan simply measure from the middle of the back, to the fingertips, then multiply by 2.
From Bamboo Bubby:
PLEASE NOTE: no 2 children are ever exactly the same size at a any age. Therefore measurements are a more accurate guide rather than the suggested age. If your childs measurements are on the lower end of the wingspan measurements & you are wanting a more snug fit, please select the previous size as there is some stretch in our fabric blend to allow for growth.
