Medicated Special Bandage Therapy
Ask your doctor about wet wrap therapy if you or your kid is experiencing a severe flare-up of atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema. This short-term supplemental rescue treatment may be a quick and secure solution to rehydrate the skin, ease excruciating pain and itching, and improve the effectiveness of topical drugs. Wet wrap therapy, according to the National Eczema Association, is applying moisturiser and medication to a flare-up before covering the affected region with a warm, damp fabric or gauze and another layer of dry cloth, such cotton pyjamas. On hands and feet, you can cover them with cotton gloves, gauze, or tube socks. Usually, patients wear wet wraps for anywhere between two hours and overnight.The wraps serve as a wall, keeping medications.
A bandage is a piece of material that can be used alone to support or limit movement of a bodily part or to support a medical device such as a dressing or splint. In conjunction with a dressing, a bandage is used to keep the dressing in place after it has been put directly to the wound. Other bandages, such elastic bandages used to relieve swelling or support a sprained ankle, are applied without the need of dressings.Read More
