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. Just as I hoped it would be 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Sep 2019

    Arrived quickly and works just like it says.
    My daughter says it's comfortable and she's happy to put it on.
    The arms seemed to shorten a little when washed, but otherwise it is perfect. You'll be happy you've bought it.

  2. Effective product 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jul 2019

    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).

  3. Great Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Mar 2019

    Makes wet dressing so much easier. Definitely recommend this product.

  4. Very convenient for wet dressings 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Apr 2018

    Very light, soft on skin, breathable texture. Stretches fine in all directions when wet. Allows the child to move around as they want (as opposed to lying down not being able to move freely with other wraps). Quick to put on and easy to apply. We use it every day for severe eczema - just what you need for a 7 y.o.

  5. best product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2018

    Keep my kid away from dry skin, easy to use. Highly recommended

  6. great for kids that need regular wet dressings 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Sep 2017

    True to size but I prefer to buy the next size up, I find they shrink over time and the material becomes more rough after a few washes which is not ideal for irritable skin, good idea to replace these dressings after 5 or 6 washes.

  7. it works so well! 5 Star Review

    Wonderful, couldn't do without them

  9. 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.

  10. easy to use 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Nov 2016

    I've bought this product twice to use when my son was 2 years old and when he is now 5. The product seems to have changed a bit and I must say it was better made when I got it for him when he was 2. However it still does the job of wet wrapping him easily.
