Using Wet Wrap Dressings To Treat Eczema For Kids – Wet Wrapping 1) Layered Pajamas Method This is a great method if eczema covers large areas of the body and/or preventing little ones 2) Bandages If your little one has an isolated eczema flare, bandages can be used on certain areas rather than.

• Wet dressings play an important role in the treatment of eczema • Wet dressings should be used when your child is hot and itchy and if they wake at night due to the itch • Your child may also need a wet dressing if there is blood on the sheets or if the eczema is still present despite treatment with cortisone ointments, moisturisers and bath oils • Early use of wet dressings will. Wet wraps can be used when your child is having an eczema flare-up (ie. it is itchy, dry and red.) Your child may only need arms and legs done or may require entire body wraps. As the face cannot be covered, we recommend applying cool compress to the face. We recommend Tubifast, as it is lightweight cotton and easy to use. A dry layer of bandage is then placed over the wet layer.

Wet wraps are particularly helpful at night (when overheating can be a problem) as they also cool the skin. Paste bandages for eczema come impregnated with ingredients that soothe the itch and calm irritation. If the eczema is on the feet and/or hands, you can use cotton gloves or socks for the wet layer with vinyl gloves or food-grade plastic wrap as the dry layer. To do wet wrap therapy, first moisten the clothing or gauze in warm water until they are slightly damp. Next, wrap the moist dressing around the affected area.

Wet dressing or wet wrapping with Tubifast can be one of the quickest, easiest & cheapest treatments for gaining control of an eczema flare up. The application of Wet Dressings can provide relief from the heat and itching sensation of eczema & other allergic rashes. During particularly intense flares with severe itch or pain, wet wrap therapy can rehydrate and calm the skin and boost the effectiveness of topical medications. Wet wraps are best done in the evening after bathing, moisturizing and applying medication. Get detailed instructions on how to do wet wrap therapy on your child.

Emollients are medical moisturisers used to treat all types of eczema. A good emollient regime can soothe, moisturise and protect the skin, helping to reduce flare-ups. Wet dressings can also be used overnight when children are most prone to scratching Wet dressings are useful in settling a severe or acute eczema flare but are generally only needed for a few days Do not use wet dressings if there is infection that is not treated, as the moist occlusive environment is ideal for the infection to worsen.

  • This makes me so sad. Eczema is such a terrible condition and there is so little known about it. Most people don’t realize that it’s an immune system issue. In many cases dietary changes will clear it up.

    Also just want to say, your baby is absolutely precious and I hope he’s doing well.

  • Thank so much for this information my child is 6year old and she was born with this condition. I have taking her to several doctors including allergist dermatologist where I liveand apparently my daughters condition is too severe or they don’t know how to handle it that is why we are planning to go to the national Jewish health to see if we have some solutions

  • We use Healing Elements in our home for all skin issues especially eczema. Lemongrass Spa sells all natural and organic products safe enough to eat but effective enough to clear up my own eczema. I order from this site http://www.ourlemongrassspa.com/3690

  • Great job! Thank you so much for sharing. It’s so frustrating that my son has suffered with severe eczema for 16 years and not one Doctor has suggested this method. I tried with just the socks for his arms and back of legs. He is so bad that he couldn’t even moisturize since even a touch makes him itchy. This method allowed me to moisturize him by soaking the socks w lotion also. I am weaning him off of a super high dose of prednisone. He felt much better almost instantly. Thank you so much! ��

  • Great video..
    Thanks lots for filming this.. my son has severe eczema.. and today was my first night trying this… praying this will make it better
    I’m doing all on my own so it’s hard but
    Would do anything to make him feel better…
