Wet Wrap Therapy and Topical Steroids for Eczema.

Below find before and after photos from Dr. Frank J Lichtenberger MD, PhD, Medical Director at AD RescueWear.

The 1st photo shows a male patient with severe erythrodermic eczema.  The 2nd photo is after one treatment with the AD RescueWear Wrap-E-Soothe Extra Large sleeve used damp over topical steroids. This photo was taken 24 hours after the 1st photo.  The Wrap-E-Soothe sleeve treatment only takes 30 seconds to apply.  The process includes applying the prescribed topical steroid and slipping the sleeve on damp.  The sleeves stay damp for approximately 2 hours and provides anti-itch relief during treatment.   The markers show the location of the sleeve during treatment.  


After One Treatment

Please See Dr. Frank's Comments on this Patient/Treatment: 

"As an Allergist/Immunologist that specializes in the treatment of inflammatory skin conditions, I see all different forms of atopic dermatitis/eczema in my clinic. This patient was more severely effected by the condition, and in the process of teaching him wet-wrap therapy, he agreed to participate in the photo documentation. The photograph shows significant improvement in the barrier of the skin where the wet wrap was added to topical steroid therapy, however it does not show the dramatic improvement of the itching that he had in the area that wrapped - which was even more prominent than the visual difference."  Dr. Frank J Lichtenberger MD, Phd, Board Certified: Internal Medicine, Allergy/Immunology
