DermaSilk therapeutic clothing has been specially designed for eczema and other skin conditions, such as contact dermatitis. The knitted antimicrobial medical-grade silk offers optimum protection with less irritation than standard fabrics (even cotton).
DermaSilk helps to reduce the chance of infection and halts the itch/scratch cycle. The therapeutic effects of these eczema garments are clinically proven, with 83% of the children in one trial showing an improvement in their atopic dermatitis from wearing DermaSilk, compared to none of the children wearing cotton.
Choose from a wide range of undergarments, socks, gloves and nightwear. Learn more about DermaSilk eczema clothing here.

These protective items of clothing are designed to protect sensitive skin from external irritants. They are not an 'eczema treatment' on their own. If you're worried about your eczema, please speak to your doctor.
