Product Description

New, ready-made Tubifast Garments, for dressing retention and wet or dry wrapping, are now available in full-sleeved vests, tights, leggings and socks. For children of six months and over. With no tapes, pins or ties, Tubifast Garments are quick and easy to apply, and their two-way stretch construction ensures complete freedom of movement, so aiding compliance. Comfortable to wear under nightwear and ordinary clothes, they also help to promote fully active days and restful nights.

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 inflammation2. The damp Tubifast Garment also acts as a retaining layer, ensuring that the emollient stays in contact with the skin. The damp layer also cools and soothes the skin and helps to reduce the itch2. 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.

Fibre content: VISCOSE, NYLON and ELASTANE.

  1. comfort size fit effectiveness speed of delivery 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th May 2017

    see above


  2. great product but not as lasting 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Mar 2017

    This is a great product but due to blood stains and the need to bleach it, it doesn't last very long. A few washes in bleach and it falls apart, rips etc. Apart from that it is a very comfortable feel and not too tight.


  3. Very convenient 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Nov 2016

    His bandage makes the whole wet wrap process a lot easier. Saves time in putting the bandage on, saves you from having to do arts and crafts with the scissors and tube bandages while your hands are covered in slimy emolient! It's a snug fit - you don't need to think about which size tube you need to cut next.

    Same process when taking off. It's one whole piece hat you can just put in the wash and hang dry after.

    The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because you can only use it 10-15 times before it starts to wear out. If you have a gild suffering from eczema you'd want a product that can last a few more washes.


  4. Eczema Relief! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Nov 2016

    My 4 year old daughter suffers from severe eczema and this product was recommended by her paediatrician. They are amazing! We have seen incredible improvement in her skin and behaviour - for us they have been effective in breaking the itch cycle. I also find she doesn't use as much steroid cream/or is on it for fewer days during a flare. She loves sleeping in them and sleeps much better for wearing them - longer and without waking through the night.
    They are also more durable than I expected which is great.
    Overall during our eczema journey I have struggled to find her any sort of comfort or treatment and I would definitely recommend trying these. I wish I'd found them much sooner!


  5. fantastic product - really works 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jul 2016

    Wet wrapping with these leggings and vest has greatly improved my little boys (3 and 7) bad eczema in a few days. They've been a real lifesaver. Great product. Received quickly. Thanks so much!

    Posted by on 8th Apr 2016

    Using the Tubifast has helped me as a mum manage my daughter - 7 year old skin with ease. Wet dressing has made a wonderful improvement helping heal and relieve my daughter from her itchy skin. I wish I used this product and method years ago.


  7. Very satisfied 4 Star Review

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


  8. Very helpful 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jul 2014

    The vest and legging have really helped my 7 year old. His skin has improved by retaining the moisture during the night so that he is able to enjoy his day with out the itch. Thank you for the fast delivery.


  9. added protection 3 Star Review

    Posted by on 22nd May 2014

    I have been using the vest & leggings (dry wrap) on my 4 year child for a week. It has definitely reduced the severity of her eczema sores as the sores are harder to get to. The leggings provide less of a barrier than the vest as she can easily scratch underneath but her skin does feel less dry. A good extra 'armour' in the fight against eczema. Fast delivery from the Allergy shop.


  10. Excellent Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Apr 2014

    Very good product.
