Hello and Welcome to Bee Well Therapeutics!

(Baby Eczema Suit Resources Guide)

We are excited to help you give your child’s skin the much-needed hydration and healing that it needs. Please read this paper completely to ensure you are safely using this medical device.

  • QUESTION: Why is a doctor’s note was required for me to be able to order this suit? 
  • ANSWER: A doctor’s note is required to ensure that your child’s skin condition is one that is appropriate for the use of this suit. We also want to make sure your child does not have an active skin infection before you put the suit on them. Examples of skin infections that this suit could make worse are impetigo (Staph or Strep skin infections), herpes infections, or fungal infections. If you are at all concerned that your child has a skin infection, do not use the suit until cleared to do so by your physician.
  • QUESTION: What are signs or symptoms of these skin infections?
  •  ANSWER: Impetigo (staph or strep skin infections) is extremely common in children who have eczema. This infection looks like red colored sore that make a honey-colored oozing/crust on the skin. It can also look like blisters. In kids with eczema, it can cause the eczema to look worse with more dryness, flaking, and oozing. Some children may have a fever when they have impetigo, but they often do not. Herpes infections (eczema herpeticum) is a severe infection in which cold sores rapidly spread through an area of eczema. This will appear as small blisters that are itchy, painful, or pus filled and quickly pop to make a round small sore. This requires immediate medical attention. Fungal infections often have a circular or ring-like appearance with a clear center. These tend to spread more slowly than bacterial infections. If you are at all concerned that your child could have one of these skin infections, DO NOT USE THIS SUIT.
  • QUESTION: Is there anything I can do to help prevent skin infections?
  • ANSWER: To help prevent recurrent impetigo (staph or strep skin infections), dermatologist will frequently recommend using a “bleach bath” 2-3 times a week. This uses a diluted concentration of bleach, similar to the strength of a swimming pool, to kill bacteria on the skin (please see the attached recipe from the National Eczema Association). You should discuss bleach baths with your healthcare provider to see if this is recommended for your child. A topical antibiotic, mupirocin, can also be prescribed to help remove staph from areas it commonly lives on the skin, this is called “decolonization therapy”.
  • QUESTION: Can I let my baby/child sleep in this suit?
  • ANSWER: We do not recommend the suit for sleep periods due to the risk of overheating. This suit should be used when your child is awake and can be supervised for signs of overheating or discomfort. Overheating can be particularly dangerous in children under 1 and is thought to be a factor that contributes to SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome). We recommend no longer than 4 hours of wear a day.
  • QUESTION: What should I put on my child’s skin under the suit?
  • ANSWER: We recommend applying an ointment-based skin moisturizer to your child’s problem areas of skin or a medicated ointment as prescribed and directed by your healthcare provider. Never apply a prescription medication under this suit unless you were directed to do so by a health care provider.
  • QUESTION: How often should I use the suit?
  • ANSWER: This will depend on the severity of your child’s eczema and the frequency of use should be directed by your healthcare provider.
