Children who struggle with a sensitive skin condition rarely find the relief they need. Keep in mind there are eight types of eczema: atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, dyshidrotic eczema, hand eczema, lichen simplex chronicus, nummular eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, and stasis dermatitis. Each type is different and presents its own challenges. As a parent, you’ve watched your son or daughter deal with frustrating outbreaks. The red, swollen and cracked skin and uncomfortable itch have become common. Dry and damaged from all the scratching, your child’s skin is left with rashes, pigment changes, and even scars. Consequently, he or she is left with unsightly patches of rough, reddened, intensely itchy skin. The reality is that eczema keeps children from living their lives to the fullest.
How Our Eczema Clothing Relieves Their Symptoms
Unfortunately, there is no cure for atopic dermatitis. But the right treatment can do a world of good for someone with eczema. Not only does treatment prevent the condition from worsening, but it also calms the skin, relieves pain, and temporarily stops that nagging itch. Eczema treatment can even stop the skin from thickening, prevent infections, and reduce emotional stress. It could be that you and your child already have a well-established treatment plan in place. Maybe it includes medicine, skin care, and lifestyle changes. At times, though, even all of this isn’t enough.
There’s where Soothems comes into play. Soothems was developed as therapeutic clothing for eczema. More specifically, it helps those with atopic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, neurodermatitis, skin allergies, and xerosis.
What Makes Soothems Different?
Soothems are made from a proprietary smart fabric called TEWLTect, a blend of high-performance cellulosic polymer fibers enhanced with Chitosan and Zinc Oxide. The properties of TEWLTect provide a positive, calming effect when the skin releases moisture. It’s important to know that this innovative smart fabric can be used as an occlusive barrier. Feel free to use it wet or dry, with or without emollients, and with any topical steroids prescribed by a physician/dermatologist.
More Than Just an Eczema Suit
There are plenty of eczema sleeves, eczema mittens, eczema gloves, and other clothing out there. As a parent, you can feel comfortable knowing that Soothems are the result of years of textile research with smart fabrics to improve the health of skin and garment design. The smart fabric in our products helps preserve skin moisture, reduce itching, control bacterial growth, and soothe the skin.
With all that in mind, it’s our hope that Soothems are more than just clothing. We want your child to think of Soothems as a fun, relaxing experience. What do we mean by this exactly? Well, the “magic print” found on our smart fabric reacts to body temperature, causing some print color images to “disappear” right before their eyes. This action reinforces healing imagery with visible change.
Watch as your child imagines their skin healing and feeling less itchy the moment they step into the “magical powers” of our eczema garments. Don’t forget that Soothems can be eligible in some cases for health insurance reimbursements.
