AD RescueWear at the Dermatology Nurses Convention

AD RescueWear Attended and Exhibited at the 32nd Annual DNA Convention

Beth Scott, president, attended the Dermatology Nurses Convention in Orlando, Florida.

There were two sessions at the conference dedicated to wet wrap therapy. Doctors have advocated wet wrap therapy as a safe and effective treatment for eczema for 20 years. When used under the direction of a physician, wet wrap therapy can greatly promote the healing of skin affected by eczema (atopic dermatitis).

Noreen Nicol PhD, RN, FNP presented at the conference on her study she did with Mark Boguniewicz, MDMatthew Strand, PhD, Mary D. Klinnert, PhD

Wet Wrap Therapy in Children with Moderate to Severe Atopic Dermatitis in a Multidisciplinary Treatment Program.  

The Conclusion of this study was:

To our knowledge, this study is the largest to date of WWT for pediatric patients with moderate-to-severe AD by using a validated outcomes tool. None of the patients required systemic immunosuppressive therapy, and only 31% were treated with an oral antibiotic. This study demonstrated the benefit of incorporating Wet Wrap Threapy as an acute intervention in a supervised multidisciplinary Atopic Dermatitis treatment program with lasting benefit 1 month after discontinuing this intervention.

The interest in the AD RescueWear products was extremely high. Beth said she felt bad that she couldn't get to all the nurses that stopped by the AD RescueWear exhibitor booth. Our products make wet wrap therapy so easy and effective for stubborn eczema. Our products are also great worn dry over creams and emollients for mild eczema.  The AD RescueWear products use an anti-itch fabric that helps calm the itch and repair the skin barrier if used over creams and emollients.  Below is an easy diagram and video on wet wrap therapy for treating eczema.
