Anyone who’s battled eczema knows it’s just that—a battle. Intense itching, restless nights, and unpredictable breakouts can leave many searching for solutions (other than steroid cream!). So, we’re excited to partner today with The Eczema Company (for the second time—see our first collaboration here) whose newer solution is getting rave reviews: specialty clothing made to provide relief for eczema. Learn about why eczema clothes are an important part of eczema therapy.
Clothing for Eczema Relief
- Made with a combination of silky TENCEL (also an eco-friendly fabric) and anti-bacterial zinc.
- No matter the area or age, there’s a piece of clothing to help (even including protective mittens to prevent scratching) whether it’s for babies, kids, or adults.
- Can be worn during the day under clothing for protection or at night for itch relief and healing.
- Especially helpful when combined with the Organic Manuka Skin Soothing Cream.
- UV protection built within, alleviating the need to wear sunscreens that could potentially further irritate the skin.
- The clothing serves as an all-in-one and can be worn wet or dry.
In a clinical study¹, Remedywear’s ratio of TENCEL and zinc was proven to reduce the severity of atopic dermatitis, reduce itchiness, and improve quality of sleep when worn overnight for three consecutive nights. Pretty cool, right?
I Asked a Friend to Try It
One of my daughter’s friends battles severe eczema, so I asked if she’d be willing to try out the clothing to see if it helped. She wore the socks for just three days, combined with the Organic Manuka Skin Soothing Cream (that we also love and talked about here). Look how well it worked in these before and after pics she sent me!
After a few weeks, I checked back in with her, and here’s what she had to say:
“My daughter has a pretty severe case of eczema that she’s battled her whole life. To be honest, I was a little skeptical about the socks; that said, I was really hopeful. The socks look very ‘normal,’ which is great—especially for kids. I started to see results when my daughter wore the socks all day; after day 3 of doing this, we saw very noticeable results. We used the Manuka Cream under the socks. The combination aided in the healing process, in my opinion. The Manuka Cream is very rich and stays on, even after washing hands. I think the socks and cream are very usable tools in battling eczema and am glad we tried them! The socks were so helpful that we are considering getting the pajamas, too.”
I can’t tell you how happy it made me feel to hear she is getting some relief. I know that anyone with eczema, or anyone who has a family member or friend with it, can relate!
I just love how super soft these socks are! I typically hate wearing socks to bed, but because these are so soft and breathable, they don’t bother me! It really helps me to prevent me from scratching my feet which I tend to do as they are my trouble area in my healing process. So I would definitely give these a go if you need some much-needed relief for your feet! – Jen
These are awesome
Love love love these socks! Skin looks sooooo much better after two days, and they totally eliminated all scratching of the ankles and lower legs. I bought a few sizes up so they would act as knee highs and I love them. – Julia
