Use Within Wrapping
Wet wrapping is a therapy used in the treatment of atopic eczema, and involves the use of an emollient under retention bandaging. An emollient (such as Epaderm which is designed for use in wet wrapping) is applied to the affected skin, which is then covered with a damp layer of Tubifast Garment. Working together, the emollient and the damp layer keep the skin hydrated and moist, and help reduce inflammation.
The damp Tubifast Garment also acts as a retaining layer, ensuring the emollient stays in contact with the skin.
The damp layer also cools and soothes the skin and helps to reduce the itch.
A second dry layer is then applied, which keeps the patient’s clothing dry and prevents further scratching from aggravating the skin and causing potential injury.
Dry wrapping 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, which is then covered with a single dry layer of Tubifast Garment.
