NHS England has announced a consultation with the view to limiting, amongst other products, the prescribing of silk garments, of which DermaSilk is included. This has resulted in a number of headlines across media channels and press, which has increased awareness of this specialist treatment. DermaSilk garments have been available on prescription for over 12 years. Evidence for their effectiveness in the management of eczema is based on the documented clinical experience of thousands of patients for over a decade and a series of published controlled clinical trials conducted throughout Europe.
