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.

    My 6 year old daughter suffers from eczema severely. These socks are worth their money! Convenient easy to use. Fast and great results!!! Great way to break the itch 'cycle'!! Now looking into purchasing the tights and shift. Super happy with the Tubifast garments! Will definitely recommend to other people as an option to battle their eczema battles.


  2. 5 year old boy loves them 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Apr 2017

    We have been wet wrapping with light compression stockinette (tubigrip) with good results. After the first night of Tubifast socks Master 5 thinks these are awesome. They are more breathable and comfortable for him. His main problem areas are his toes so having them nicely contained is working very well. We will invest in an extra couple of pairs.


  3. Easy and convenient 5 Star Review

    My son has severe eczema but when it manages to clear up his feet always stay bad. The tubifast socks make it quick and easy to wet wrap his feet anytime without having to do a complete body wet wrap and after 15 minutes his feet look great and he can walk again.
    I highly recommend having a few pairs of these around.
