  • How Can You Treat Your Child's Eczema?

    Wet Wrap Therapy has been advocated by doctors for 20 years as a safe and effective treatment for childhood eczema and has been proven to reduce the need for topical steroids in children.  Wet Wrap Therapy has been proven to:

  • Calms the itch
  • Help repair the skin barrier
  • Provide more restful sleep
  • Decrease the staph bacteria found on the skin
  • Manage the eczema and greatly minimizes symptoms
  • According to the American Academy of Dermatology: Studies show that wet-wrap therapy can effectively re-hydrate and calm the skin. In 1 such study, children with severe atopic dermatitis who had not responded to other treatments were treated with wet wrap therapy. All children experienced significant improvements. In just 1 week, there was a 75% average reduction in itch and the children had less sleep loss. Improvements to their skin lasted well beyond 2 weeks of treatment.
  • Study at Mayo Clinic (218 patients over 2 years) Conclusion: Wet wrap therapy was highly effective in controlling severe eczema. Intensive topical treatment, although underused, is an effective first-line approach for patients with severe atopic dermatitis (eczema).
