Putting him to sleep was a nightmare before I found these sleeves. They are a God send. I have a pair for home and one for daycare. He now asks for them whenever he sleeps. They're like a teddy bear for him!! I love ScratchMeNot! -Sarah
He was scratching terribly, leaving him frustrated and in pain. Thankfully, we found out about ScratchMeNots. Although he was still itchy, he has relief and the medication had the time it needed to work. I can breathe! -Odori
Let me tell you, ScratchMeNots are the best products I ever purchased! I've spent hundreds of $ buying cream to stop Mason scratching, but this is by far the best product to stop him hurting himself. I strongly recommend the SMN! Give it a go, stops your baby hurting themselves, and gives you back sanity!! - Michelle
After being hospitalized due to eczema at 3months old we searched for mittens that my little boy couldn't take off. After using the scratch me nots for only a couple of days we saw a huge difference! Love how soft they are and that we can keep them on and just fold back the hand covers for when he's playing! -Sandra
Thank you for your product. After about a month of use during every nap and bedtime, our little girl's hair is finally growing back (on the left). She had pulled almost all of it out while sucking her thumb and hair twirling and now we have a little pig tail. It's quite a bit smaller than the other side, but progress! -Liz
Your ScratchMeNots are awesome. I've attached a before picture when we were using socks and anything we could find to put on our daughters hands, and when we were using the sleeves. She used to bleed everywhere and now the improvement is huge. Just reduces our anxiety that she has something to stop her from hurting herself. When we use them on her now she actually LIKES putting them on because they are silky soft! They saved our sanity!! -Alanna
Skin is a miraculous organ that is constantly repairing itself. Unfortunately, when scratching fingers constantly disturbs the skin, it takes longer to repair and heal. Continued scratching can create permanent skin damage. By covering your little one's fingers during scratching moments, the skin can continue its naturally healing process with or without medication.
One of the biggest concerns with skin conditions are bacterial infections such as staphylococcus or wounds that aren't allowed to heal. Constant scratching can introduce bacteria into broken skin. To reduce the risk of infection, keep hands & nails clean and also nails cut short. ScratchMeNots prevent your child from repeatedly irritating the skin as they provide a soft, protective barrier between their fingers and skin.
One of the treatments many doctors use to treat eczema are steroids, because they quickly heal the skin. When a child is constantly scratching or rubbing, they are also rubbing off the medication. Therefore, the medication must be reapplied more frequently than intended. Overuse of steroids use can cause: thinning of the skin, steroid withdrawal and a few other concerns. Should you decide to use medications or natural creams, ScratchMeNots help them stay on longer, which allows the skin heal faster.
