The Skinnies Guide to Wet Wrap Therapy.
Using Eczema Wet Wrap Therapy can be effective for managing moderate to severe eczema and can help by soothing the skin, introducing moisture and helping to reduce itching and scratching.
Here’s our step-by-step guide to Wet Wrap Therapy.
Step 1. Soak wraps thoroughly in warm water. Make sure that the water is not too hot.
Step 2. Bathe in warm water with a gentle cleanser for approximately for 15-20 minutes.
Step 3. Lightly pat skin dry with a soft and absorbent towel.
Step 4. Once the child is dry, apply the prescribed or recommended cream or lotion immediately. Wet Wrapping using topical steroid creams should only be done under the direction of your healthcare professional.
Step 5. Wring out any excess water and directly apply the damp wrap to lock in moisture. Apply a dry wrap on top of the wet wrap and clothing on top as required. Dry wraps provide a further seal for the moisture and also protect clothing and linen. Keep child warm to avoid chills and keep wraps away from the face.
Nothing provides quick eczema relief like wet wrap therapy! Wet wrapping also works well for psoriasis, allergic contact dermatitis, and dermatomyositis.
