Ideal for wet and dry wrap therapy
Wet and dry wrap therapy is a technique developed to treat the symptoms of Atopic Eczema. Using this technique with ComfiWEAR™ or ComfiKIDS™ garments, will reduce itching, improve sleep and increase comfort – helping patients to carry on with a normal life, night and day.
Wet Wrap Therapy
Step 1 - Choose the garments to be used for each area of the body that needs to be wrapped. You will need two pieces of each garment – so if it’s the legs, you will need two pairs of leggings or tights (dependent on age).
Step 2 - Place one garment into a bowl of warm water and leave to soak. Wet wraps have a cooling, anti-itch effect and helps add needed moisture to the skin.
Step 3 - Bathe with the appropriate bath oil or emollient recommended by your Healthcare Professional. After bathing, pat the skin dry and apply any steroids or emollients that have been prescribed or recommended.
Step 4 - Remove the garment from the water and squeeze out any excess water.
Step 5 - While still warm, put on the garment over the emollients. (Remember the label and seams should be on the outside).
Step 6 - Put on the second, dry layer of the garment and then dress as normal.
The decision to wet wrap should only be done so under the guidance of a healthcare professional. Do not wet wrap if eczema appears wet or infected or if the child is unwell. If in doubt please contact your healthcare professional.
