We usually recommend using Tubifast dressings as they are light and breathable, keeping the product on the skin with increased absorption, and preventing the child or baby from scratching. You can buy them in metres or a box of 10 metres. They can be washed and re-used several times (up to 10-15 times), if there is no active skin infection. You can use it to wrap the head or arms and limbs. ( PS: Red: babies small limbs, Green: 6 months onwards, most kids fall into this condition. Blue: Adult limbs Yellow: Child’s torso) 

New Tubifast 2-Way Stretch is the world’s first and only lightweight elasticated tubular bandage with radial and longitudinal stretch. This unique mode of action allows patients complete freedom of movement, with added comfort. Ideal for dressing retention and skin covering for any part of the body. It can also be used for patch wrapping and as an under-cast stockinette. 

Tubifast 2-Way Stretch holds dressings securely in place without the need for tapes, pins or ties. It is quick and easy to use, with less risk of fraying than traditional tubular bandages. Because of its tubular construction, Tubifast 2-Way Stretch is particularly suitable for holding dressings in place on difficult areas such as stumps of amputee patients.

Use Within Wrapping
Wet wrapping is a therapy used in the treatment of atopic eczema, and involves the use of an emollient under retention bandaging. An emollient (such as Epaderm Ointment which is designed for use in wet wrapping) is applied to the affected skin, which is then covered with a damp layer of Tubifast Bandage. Working together, the emollient and the damp layer keep the skin hydrated and moist, and help reduce inflammation. The damp Tubifast Garment also acts as a retaining layer, ensuring that the emollient stays in contact with the skin. The damp layer also cools and soothes the skin and helps to reduce the itch. A second, dry layer is then applied, which keeps the patient’s clothing dry and prevents further scratching from aggravating the skin and causing potential injury.

Dry wrapping is a similar process to wet wrapping. An emollient is applied to the affected skin, which is then covered with a single, dry layer of Tubifast Bandage.

Fibre content: VISCOSE, NYLON and ELASTANE.

 

Sizing
It is recommended that Tubifast Bandages are sized according to dimension. See table below.

How to use tubifast:

1: Tubifast 2-Way Stretch bandage is a lightweight conforming stockinette which can be used for wet or dry wrapping, dressing retention or as an undercast stockinette. To apply a Tubifast 2-Way Stretch bandage all that is needed is a pair of scissors and a pair of hands. Simply cut off the required length.

2: Stretch the piece of Tubifast 2-Way Stretch bandage over the hands and over the affected limb if securing a dressing. If limb coverage is required the Tubifast 2-Way Stretch bandage is simply pulled or rolled on as a stocking.

3: The Tubifast 2-Way Stretch bandage covers the dressing/limb and gives it a light, even, non–constricting pressure. It may be applied in a double layer especially over joints for extra security, or the edges may be tucked under. Either way it stays in place and is quick, easy, comfy and non-constricting.

As the bandage edges are not seamed, please hand wash to avoid fraying. If using the bandages with Epaderm (or a similar emollient), to remove the emollient from the bandages, place into hot water to soak, then hand wash in warm water (40 degrees). Air dry.

Tubifast garments and bandages are suppose to last for approximately 10-15 washes.

FAQs

Being allergic to bee venom is different to being allergic to bee-products. Propolis is made from bee's saliva and pollen, resin and plant extracts. A bee's sting contains the toxin melittin and is meant to discourage potential threats from coming close to the hive and queen bee. It is meant to induce an extremely painful and uncomfortable reaction. A bee uses it's saliva and mixes it with tree resin and pollen to make glue or propolis to patch up it's hive. Propolis exists to keep the hive safe from microbial contamination.

Spray with a toner on clean skin, then massage a few drops of an oil serum, followed by a cream to seal in the oils. Just using an oil serum on it's own will not replace the moisture in the skin. Moisture or water is contained in a cream, not a balm or oil.

A balm does not contain water, so has no preservatives or alcohol which may cause stinging on broken, raw and inflamed skin. Whan the skin is in that condition, it is generally more sensitive and reactive. A balm is also better suited for skin that needs intensive treatment with actives as it sits on the skin for longer and allows better penetration of actives. It also contain waxes such as beeswax or candelilla wax (plant version of beeswax) which will increase hydration of the skin by preventing moisture loss from the skin's surface. It acts as a natural barrier when the skin is broken and compromised. It may feel oiler on the face, so a serum or cream would be better for the face.
