Spe­cial Bed­ding

The People's Friend - - Health -

Peo­ple with se­vere eczema and der­mati­tis can find the rough tex­ture of some bed linen ir­ri­tates their con­di­tion, and syn­thetic fi­bres can cause over­heat­ing and ex­ces­sive itch­i­ness. The Der­mather­apy bed­ding range by Espere Health has been spe­cially wo­ven to mimic silk, with gaps be­tween the fi­bres to al­low heat to es­cape and min­imise ir­ri­ta­tion.

In the US, the bed­ding range is classed as a “med­i­cal” aid, and a 2008 study (in the jour­nal “Pe­di­atric Der­ma­tol­ogy”) re­ported a re­duc­tion in sore­ness and itch­ing in pa­tients with der­mati­tis. It might also help re­duce pres­sure sores. The Der­mather­apy range starts from £19.95 for a pil­low-case from es­pere­health.co.uk.
