- Biologic therapy (“biologics” are among the most targeted therapies which can treat certain conditions at immune system level)
After a detailed discussion with your dermatologist, the most appropriate treatments can be selected taking your wishes, your general medical health and your skin into account.
Wet wrapping is a specialised technique use particularly to improve eczema in children with specialised bandaging. Our specialist nurses can perform this treatment for your child and teach you how to undertake this at home. It is highly effective at reducing itching and scratching, helping your child sleep better.
Phototherapy and nurse treatment
Many eczema patients simply need a little help to suppress the eczema and allow all the inflammation to settle. Our nurses can apply treatments to your skin and teach you how to get the best out of the products and medications that you have been prescribed.
Using our UVB Phototherapy machine, whole body eczema can be brought under control and provide significant relief.
