Tubifast Gloves for Children


Product Description

It comes in pair (2 pieces)

Size information
The small gloves are from the age of 4-5 years and upwards. 

Hands up who wants relief from hand eczema?
The misery of hand eczema affects up to 5% of adults, and while cases vary in severity, this common condition can be very disabling. A visible skin disease can cause anxiety and low self esteem, affecting an individual’s ability to socialise, do their job and interact with others. No busy, active person can be told not to use their hands, and yet, the first-line therapy for atopic eczema is to apply a moisturising emollient.

Tubifast Gloves are ideal as a dermatological covering or for wet or dry wrapping, allowing patients to keep a greasier, more effective emollient in contact with skin for longer – giving the skin a chance to heal. The gloves are seamless and provide freedom of movement so patients can get on with their lives even during the worst flare-ups.

Glove features
- Allow full freedom of movement of fingers and thumbs, therefore can be worn throughout the day and night without interfering with normal day-to-day activities
- Provide full coverage of the wrists, a common location of eczematous skin
- Help keep the emollient in close contact with the skin for longer 
- Shield inflamed hands from view and protect bedding and clothing from a greasier emollient 
- Act as a physical barrier, helping to protect the hands against the damaging effect scratching has on the skin 

Fibre content: VISCOSE, NYLON and ELASTANE.

Designed to cover and protect, Tubifast Gloves can be worn in three ways:
1) Use one pair alone as a dermatological covering. The gloves will protect bedding and clothing from dermatological preparations. 
2) Dry wrapping: apply one pair of gloves directly over a liberal layer of emollient (such as Epaderm which is designed for use in dry wrapping).
3) Wet wrapping: use two pairs of gloves in the wet wrapping technique. Apply a liberal layer of emollient to the hands (such as Epaderm which is designed for use in wet wrapping), followed by a warm damp pair of gloves and then a dry pair on top.


The benefits of wet wrapping
- disruption of the itch-scratch cycle
- less sleep interruption
- cooling and soothing the skin
- better hydration, reducing inflammation and allergen load

Washing instructions
- Can be machine washed at 60 degrees (if using Epaderm or a similar emollient. The hot wash removes the emollient from the garment.) Can be tumble dried on low. It is best to use a delicates bag when washing and drying.

Tubifast garments and bandages are suppose to last for approximately 10-15 washes.

  1. Best gloves for painful eczema hands 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Jan 2021

    My daughter loves these gloves when her fingers are all cracked. This is the most stretchy, tight fitting and thin glove! Because it fits so snug, it's easier to use fingers while wearing them.
    But sadly, this "child small" size is getting too small for her now that she is 7 years old, although she can squeeze in. This must be same size as the pair that was bit too big when she was 2 years old then she grew into. Wish there are more sizes, also, wish there were size charts.

  2. Tubifast Gloves (child) 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Jan 2020

    These gloves provide needed protection and bandage retention for my son. He wears these gloves 24/7, and they are easy to put on & take off, even over his bandages. We cut the fingertips off to allow more tactile sensation but also use some full-fingered when more protection is warranted. Easy to wash, although being white fabric they get dingy quickly. Wonderful product; highly recommended.

  3. effective product 4 Star Review

    We have alway had success following the instructions of Tubifast Garments to control Eczema flare-ups and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
    We found the gloves are quite small (not as stretchy as the other garments). In saying that, they were perfect when my son was 2 (couldn’t really find any other options for him).

  4. Best hand gloves for eczema 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Feb 2019

    My son get eczema on his hands. It usually starts with tiny little blisters that can join together and become a big blister. They get really itchy. I found these gloves are a life saver. We put them on wet after applying the steroid cream and moisturiser. He sleeps with them for a few nights and his hands recover really well.

    I am very happy with this product. It is comfortable, strong but not tight, and great for my son's sensitive skin.

  7. Problem Solver 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Nov 2015

    I'm so relieved to have found this product. The night we tried them on my son was the first night he didn't find a way into his wraps to scratch himself silly! I highly recommend these but when putting them on pull them up under arm wraps so they are not easily taken off in the night and you will be as happy as I am ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    The first gloves I have been able to find that fit my 2 year old!

  9. Gloves 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jan 2015

    The cotton gloves are good but would be more ideal if there was an option with velcro closure or something like this to prevent my boy from pulling them off during the night in his sleep. If you ever did this version I would be the first to buy them and I think they would be a great option for kids that get itchy at night.
    Many thanks
