Areas of use

Wet wrapping is a therapy used in the treatment of atopic eczema, and involves the use of an emollient under retention bandaging. This can be done using the emollient Epaderm™ Ointment together with Tubifast Garments with 2-way Stretch Technology or Tubifast 2-way Stretch bandages.

An emollient is applied to the affected skin, which is then covered with a damp layer of Tubifast Garment with 2-way Stretch Technology or bandage. Working together, the emollient and the damp layer keep the skin hydrated and moist and help reduce inflammation1.

The damp Tubifast Garment with 2-way Stretch Technology or bandage also acts as a retaining layer, ensuring that the emollient stays in contact with the skin. The damp layer also cools and soothes the skin, helping to reduce the itch2.

A second, dry layer is then applied, which keeps the patient’s clothing dry and prevents further scratching from aggravating the skin and causing potential injury. Dry wrapping is a similar process to wet wrapping. An emollient is applied to the affected skin, which is then covered with a single, dry layer of Tubifast Garment with 2-way Stretch Technology or bandage.
