Are There any new Therapies to Help my Child With Eczema?

The children in the study soaked in a bathtub of warm water for 10-20 minutes, followed by their usual regimen of lotions, creams, and ointments. To seal in the moisture, the children were then wrapped in wet cloths and covered with a layer of dry clothes (or wet pajamas). The wet wraps were left on for two hours 2-3 times per day for two weeks, gradually reducing the wrapped areas to just the affected skin.

The children in the study had a dramatic improvement in their eczema symptoms. While parents should not attempt wet wrap therapy on their own, this may be an effective option for children with severe eczema under a doctor’s supervision.
