Fairview Village, PA (PRWEB) June 11, 2004 -
Â Tube socks are intended for the feet. However, a growing number of moms across America whose babies suffer from eczema (atopic dermatitis) and severe skin irritations have resorted to using tube socks on their babies' hands to protect their delicate skin from scratching and further irritation. Drumstix has the solution, a product that can benefit many mothers and care providers; protective mittens that are soft and fit securely on the babyÂs hands.
Made of 100% cotton, Drumstix Protective Mittens are constructed of two plies of fabric to give them the thickness necessary to protect the babyÂs skin from scratching, and a seamless finish for comfort. The protective mittens have a long sleeve made of 100% cotton ribbing that gives a snug secure fit (an alternative to the discomforts of an elastic band.) Fun characters and a variety of colorful patterns can help divert babyÂs attention from the discomforts of their skin. Babies with habitual thumb sucking and hand biting can also benefit from these mittens.
Oatmeal baths, lotions, and creams are all part of the regimen for moms who have babies with eczema and skin irritations. But the discomforts persist, and babies can't help themselves from scratching. Drumstix Protective Mittens can protect babies' skin from further irritation because of the extra thickness. The long sleeves on the mittens provide a secure fit, and can provide coverage in the elbow area where many irritations can occur.
Pediatricians and dermatologists who have seen these mittens have recommended the product and commented, "What a great idea! Why didnÂt we think of this?"
About Drumstix, LLC
Drumstix http://www.drumstixbymoms.com was founded by a group of moms whose children has severe eczema and allergies. They did everything the pediatricians and dermatologists recommended for their babies, to try to relieve some of the discomforts. They needed mittens with a thick layer to effectively protect the skin from scratching, which would also fit properly and stay on the hands. These moms were extremely frustrated that such a mitten didnÂt exist, and their resort was tube socks; so they created their own protective mitten.
Drumstix moms are always educating themselves as well as others about eczema. Look for them at the National Eczema Association Inaugural Patient Conference Exhibition July 16-18, 2004 at the Crystal City Marriot in Arlington, VA.
