An amazing product and so grateful for these. William’s eczema got infected several times as a baby and he had to be put on three courses of antibiotics. We would dread going into his room and seeing the damage he had done to his skin. Before I found these I was constantly picking up scratch mits and socks which just fell off as soon as they went on. Not to mention washing blood off his sheets and clothes.
These sleeves allowed his skin to heal and stopped him scratching and spreading any further infection. Scratchsleeves are a bolero style with cotton sleeves and silk mits which cover the hands. They are 100% cotton. Another benefit is the silk feauture, when my son’s skin was weeping the cotton fibres of ordinary scratch mits or socks tended to stick to his face, irriate the skin and increase infection not to mention the fact they were so abrasive. William seemed to find them very comfortable in fact I think they became a comfort for him at night as he felt secure with them on! He slept so much better and had full movement with them so was able to wear throughout the day for playing. They come in lots of sizes from baby up to 6years. www.scratchsleeves.co.uk
