Does your child have stubborn itchy eczema? The best treatment method for moderate to severe eczema is wet wrap therapy. Wet wrap therapy has been advocated by doctors as a safe and effective treatment for childhood eczema for 20 years. Recent research reports and average reduction in eczema and eczema symptoms by 70% in just 5 days of treatment. Wet wrap therapy brings down eczema inflammation, calms the itch and repairs the skin barrier. Wet wrap therapy is the only treatment that provides more restful sleep for eczema sufferers. This therapy is a great option if the baby or child and the family are struggling with sleep deprivation due to nighttime itching. Don't let the word "wet" scare you off. You will apply warm, damp  garments over an emollient and it usually dries in 2 hours. This damp eczema garment calms the itch during treatment so the baby or child finds it extremely soothing.  Apply a dry layer of cotton clothing over the damp eczema garments to keep the child warm.

Wet wrap therapy is a wonderful option for treating stubborn baby or child eczema because it decreases the need for topical steroids. Topical steroids have side effects and most parents worry about using it on children or babies. Keep in mind that when using topical steroids on children for eczema, topical steroids should only be used when other treatment options have failed and should be used for no more than two weeks.

Below you will find a diagram and tips for successful wet wrap therapy to treat stubborn child eczema. Adults can also wet wrap their eczema and follow the same tips and diagram.

Wet wrap therapy is quite simple if you have the right tools.  The AD RescueWear Wrap-E-Soothe garments were designed for wet wrapping eczema.  You can do a full body eczema treatment in just two minutes.  The AD RescueWear wet wrap eczema sleeves can be applied in under 30 seconds.  Other options for wet wrap therapy applications are wet gauze or cotton clothing. Gauze and cotton clothing are not ideal for wet wrap therapy, especially if you are treating a child. Children tend to remove the gauze and find it itchy and scratchy. Cotton clothing gets baggy, loose, cold and uncomfortable when wet. The cotton fiber also becomes rough when wet. If the child does not feel comfortable and soothed during treatment, the parent will have a hard time being consistent with the treatment. Specialty wet wrap clothing also has features that gauze and cotton clothing do not have such as anti-itch fabric, built-in hand covers and 6% spandex to stay close to the skin for effective treatment. The wet wrap therapy treatment should be done consecutively for 3-5 days.
