Tubifast dressing has a light, open construction to allow air to circulate, and provides light elasticity for dressing retention without restricting movement. Ideal for use in wet wrapping eczema treatment.
Wet wrapping is a therapy that involves the use of an emollient under retention bandaging such as Tubifast garments or Tubifast bandages. An emollient (moisturiser) is applied to the affected skin, which is then covered with a damp layer of Tubifast. Working together, the emollient and the damp layer keep the skin hydrated and moist, and help reduce inflammation. The damp Tubifast also acts as a retaining layer, ensuring that the emollient stays in contact with the skin. A second, dry layer of bandage is applied to keep the patients clothing dry and prevents further scratching
