DermaSilk Therapeutic Clothing is used in the treatment of various forms of dermatitis, eczema and allergic skin conditions that affect different areas of the body across all age groups. Used both as underwear by day and as nightwear this fabric allows the skin to breathe and controls temperature and humidity - reducing itch and controlling flares. Unlike emollient retention garments, DermaSilk Therapeutic Clothing is intended to be worn continuously to help control eczema and reduce both the frequency and severity of eczema flares. DermaSilk does not replace conventional treatment like emollients and steroids but is used alongside them. What you will find is that the use of creams will naturally reduce as the DermaSilk controls the eczema.
