Tubifast Gloves for Eczema and Psoriasis
Tubifast Gloves with 2-way Stretch Technology form part of the Tubifast garments range for eczema treatment and dressing fixation.
 
They are comfortable to wear as they allow freedom of movement and feature flat seams to help to prevent skin irritation. 

To treat atopic eczema on the hands, Tubifast Gloves can be used for wet or dry wrapping using an emollient such as Epaderm Ointment.
 
  • Wet wrapping: (1) An emollient is applied to the affected skin, which is then covered with a damp layer of Tubifast Gloves. Working together, the emollient and the damp layer keep the skin hydrated and moist and help reduce inflammation. The damp layer also ensures that the emollient stays in contact with the skin and cools and soothes the skin, helping to reduce the itch. (2) A second, dry layer is then applied, which keeps clothing dry and prevents further scratching from aggravating the skin and causing potential injury.

 

  • Dry wrapping: This 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 Gloves.
