Colief Infant Drops Colief Infant Drops help to relieve colic in babies from birth onwards. The active ingredient is lactase, a naturally occurring enzyme that we all need to break down lactose, found in breast milk and most infant milk formulas, into the simple sugars glucose and galactose which can then be absorbed as part of the normal digestive process.Lactase deficiency in newborn babies can lead to temporary digestive discomfort (bloatedness, wind and griping pain), which results from undigested lactose in food. This can be an important factor in some babies with colic.Colief Infant Drops compensate for a possible temporary lactase deficiency in the baby's digestive system, by breaking down most of the lactose before the baby is fed to make it more digestible. Studies have shown that the hours of crying may be greatly reduced when a baby's usual milk is treated with Colief Infant Drops.Colief Infant Drops are sugar free and are suitable for vegetarians.

Tubifast GlovesTubifast Gloves with 2-way Stretch Technology form part of the Tubifast garments range for eczema treatment and dressing fixation. They are comfortable to wear as they allow freedom of movement and feature flat seams to help to prevent skin irritation. To treat atopic eczema on the hands, Tubifast Gloves can be used for wet or dry wrapping using an emollient such as Epaderm Ointment.Wet wrapping: An emollient is applied to the affected skin, which is then covered with a damp layer of Tubifast Gloves. Working together, the emollient and the damp layer keep the skin hydrated and moist and help reduce inflammation. The damp layer also ensures that the emollient stays in contact with the skin and cools and soothes the skin, helping to reduce the itch. A second, dry layer is then applied, which keeps clothing dry and prevents further scratching from aggravating the skin and causing potential injury.Dry wrapping: This 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 Gloves.Tubifast Gloves are supplied as a pair in the following sizes:Child Extra Small (Manufacturer ref: 5922)Child Small (Manufacturer ref: 5923)Child Medium-Large / Adult Small (Manufacturer ref: 5921)Adult Medium-Large (Manufacturer ref: 5920)The Tubifast garment range also contains socks, tights, leggings and vests.

DermaSilk Therapeutic Clothing - Child PyjamasDermaSilk Therapeutic Clothing is a range of clothing that is is revolutionising the management of atopic eczema, dermatitis and allergic skin conditions. The unique fabric allows the skin to breathe and controls temperature and humidity to reduce itching and irritation and control flare-ups. They are designed to be used alongside them conventional treatments like emollients and steroids rather than replacing them, but you will find that your use of creams will naturally reduce as DermaSilk Therapeutic Clothing controls the eczema. Unlike emollient retention garments, DermaSilk Therapeutic Clothing is intended to be worn continuously as a preventative base layer of underclothing to help control eczema and reduce both the frequency and severity of eczema flares, effectively replacing normal underwear and nightwearDermaSilk Therapeutic Clothing is made from a special knitted medical grade silk which has been stripped of its outer coating and bonded with Microbe Shield technology. It is far superior to cotton because it retains up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without feeling damp and has been clinically proven to control the symptoms of eczema far better than cotton underclothing. It is not like any other silk garments that you can buy - these have been shown in controlled clinical trials not to perform in the same way as DermaSilk Therapeutic Clothing.DermaSilk Therapeutic Clothing maintains a stable moisture balance on the skin whether its worn on warm or cold days and all the garments in the range are capable of absorbing moisture without causing irritation to the skin. Unlike with wrapping garments, the wearer will not overheat in summer or become too cold in winter.DermaSilk Therapeutic Clothing has natural anti-inflammatory and moisturising properties so there is no need to add softeners to the silk. Consequently only a small amount of emollient needs to be applied to the skin before it is worn so it is extremely easy to use and the garments will wash and wear repeatedly. In many cases the child will grow out of the garments before they are worn out.Silk is a protein fibre and as such can promote the growth of bacteria and fungi which can come into contact with it, so DermaSilk Therapeutic Clothing is antimicrobially protected. The antimicrobial used only works when the fabric is actually touching the skin so that it does not wear out over time due to washing. The possibility of bacterial resistance developing is virtually zero because the shield acts by physically damaging the microbe cell walls rather than killing them by chemical toxins such as triclosan or silver. There is no migration of the antimicrobial agent from the silk to the skin so no risk of a build up of any toxic compounds on the delicate skin of the wearer. The antimicrobial is colourless and odourlessDermaSilk Therapeutic Clothing does not contain silver molecules of any sort, nor any nano-particle material. It only comes in its natural silk colour as dyes used in the manufacture might provoke allergic reactions. The range has been specially designed with soft seams with minimal stitching to prevent the thread from scratching the skin and on the smaller garments the seams are on the outside of the garments, just to make sure.DermaSilk Therapeutic Clothing - Child Pyjamas are available in ages 3-4 years, 5-6 years, 7-8 years and 10-12 years.
