Benefits of wet wrappingWet wrapping is a therapy used in the treatment of atopiceczema, and involves the use of an emollient under a garment.This can be done using the emollient Epaderm® Ointmenttogether 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 helpreduce inflammation.
The damp Tubifast Gloves also act as a retaining layer, ensuringthat the emollient stays in contact with the skin. The damp layeralso cools and soothes the skin, helping to reduce the itch.A second, dry pair of Tubifast Gloves is then applied, which keepsthe patient’s clothing dry and prevents further scratching fromaggravating 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 coveredwith a single, dry pair of Tubifast Gloves.
