Eczema! I need to stop her scratching!

DD is 2 she has eczema which is very sore on her arms at the moment. I was wondering if anyone knew of anywhere that sells really lightweight long sleeve cotton vests? As soon as her skin is exposed she scratches and ends up making herself bleed so I was thinking if I could just keep her covered up for a few weeks without her skin getting too sweaty it would help. Any ideas?

cotton comfort pjs are amazing. organic porridge inside tights and 'swish and wash her skin with it in the bath. organic alone vera lotion/gel.

GP or HV can prescribe comfifast or tubifast or skinnies these are garments that are like stretchy bandages and come as long sleeved tops, tights etc. you can cream up underneath and they have been great for my DD. for some reason she is better with some pressure on the skin. pm ne if you want more details.
