AD RescueWear Interviews Letha Adams on How She Successfully Manages Her Child's Eczema.
Please tell us what age your child developed eczema and the symptoms?
Vincent has had eczema from almost birth. He kept developing patches of eczema then it developed and covered most of his body. He suffers from allergies that also make his eczema worse. We have been told his eczema is very severe. His back, neck, arms, and feet are usually hit the hardest by his eczema.
Please discuss your experience with your child’s doctor and other physicians and who was most helpful?
After seeing the pediatrician and being given steroid cream after steroid cream we were referred to an allergist. The allergist did many test and put him on an anti-histamine and suggested wet wrapping. He also warned us of the dangers of overuse of steroids. The allergist was certainly the most helpful during this challenging experience.
What is your process of controlling your child’s eczema? Please explain what did and did not work.
Our process includes topical steroids, anti itch washes and lotions, moisturizers, anti-histamines, and wet wrap therapy. There have certainly been some trial and error with attempting to control my son's eczema. There has been many creams and washes that have irritated his skin even further. Dogs and cats cause his eczema to flare. Being outside too long causes flares. We are also dealing with food and synthetic allergies as well.
Was wet wrap therapy with the AD RescueWear eczema clothing effective in treating your child’s eczema?
The AD RescueWear Wrap-E-Soothe Top has helped provide relief for my son. His hands and arms haven't looked better. This product also gives him temporary relief from his constant itching.
Did you have a positive or negative experience with AD RescueWear Eczema Treatment Clothing?
I have had a very positive experience so far with AD RescueWear. When I put the Wrap-E Soothe Top on my two year old son after a bath, he immediately showed signs of relief from his constant itching. Within a few minutes, he had fallen asleep peacefully and rested well for the first time in months.
How did you hear about AD RescueWear?
I originally heard about wet wrapping eczema from our allergist. It was suggested to us to purchase eczema clothing to make the process more simple. While browsing on Facebook, an AD RescueWear ad popped up on my newsfeed. I immediately went to the website to view the products.
What future products would you like to see at AD RescueWear?
I would love to see extended sizes. Even at two years old my son already wears a size four. A face mask that covers the neck would be wonderful for us.
