How to Use Tubifast socks for eczema through wet wrapping:
Wet wrapping is a dermatologist recommended eczema treatment for atopic skin rashes including dermatitis. Wet wrapping usually involves the use of an emollient or topical steroid under retention bandaging. An emollient (such as Epaderm which is designed for use in wet wrapping) is applied directly to the affected skin. The affected area is then covered with a damp layer of Tubifast socks for eczema. Working together, the emollient and the damp layer keep the skin cool, hydrated and moist and may help reduce inflammation. The damp Tubifast socks act as a retaining layer, ensuring that the emollient stays in contact with the skin. The damp layer assists to cool and soothe the skin reducing the itch. A second, dry layer is then applied, which can be a second pair of tubifast socks or the patient’s own socks. Wet wrapping may also prevent scratching and further aggravation to the skin.
Dry wrapping eczema is a similar process to wet wrapping. An emollient (such as Epaderm which is designed for use in dry wrapping) is applied to the affected skin. This is then covered with a single, dry layer of Tubifast socks for eczema.
