1 UK Oh no! Normally tranquil Skin Care World has been invaded by evil Al Ergy and the Pollution Gang! Will the citizens be overcome by the forces of itching and soreness, or can the Happy Wrappers (including you) save the day? Follow the adventure, colour in the pictures (careful with the baddies), join the dots, play the eczema quiz and then go on-line to for the latest in looking after your skin!

2 Meet the Happy Wrappers Skin Care World is normally a peaceful, friendly place where our band of friends hang out, go to school and generally have a cool time. Hi, I m Thomas! I ve got eczema, like you, but I kick it into touch with the help of Emolly and wrapping. My favourite sport is football I m the Happy Wrappers goalie which means I get muddy almost every day! Mum goes mad, especially as mud and dirt make my skin worse, so she adds emollient to my bath. I also use it as soap, and my mum puts it straight onto my skin. It s really soothing and it helps to keep my skin moist. Hello, my name s Kimberley! I m a skateboard fanatic. My eczema isn t bad all the time it flares up. When this happens, my mum helps me patch wrap that is, we put emollient all over the sore bits and then cover them with Tubifast bandage. Mostly I dry wrap but, if it s really itchy, I wet wrap. Hi everyone, I m Toby! They call me the baby of the gang, but I m not. I m four! Sometimes, I can t go out with everyone else because I m tired. I remember one time I missed a game because I d been awake all night with this horrible itching. But mum had this brilliant idea to stop it. She puts emollient on my skin after a bath, then she puts me into some wet Tubifast Garments a vest, leggings and socks and wow! The itching just goes away! Then I put on some dry Tubifast Garments to stop my pyjamas getting wet and then I SLEEEEEP all night without scratching! Hey folks, I am Ash. My Tubifast Garments give me superpowers! It s like being a superhero whenever there s an itch or a scratch in the vicinity, I look for the nearest phone box and change into WRAPMAN defender of cool, calm skin! OK, maybe it s not quite like that, but wet wrapping with emollient and Tubifast Garments really makes a difference to my skin! Hiya, I m Anita. I m seven and I get eczema, too. Mum says it s caused by lack of moisture in the skin. She says Imagine your skin is thirsty. What would you do to make it better? Give it a drink, of course! So that s what I do whenever I feel dry and itchy I get mum to put emollient in the bath. It melts in the warm water, and it feels really soothing on my skin! When I m out of the bath, more emollient keeps me cool and free of itches. Hello, I m Emolly, the gloopy elephant. I m here to make you feel cooler and less itchy. I live in my Epaden, which is gloopy, but lovely and cool. I just have one problem I forget things so when you need my help, you have to remind me (and sometimes you also have to wake me up). That s what comes of being so gloopy, I guess! You! We have room for just one more member of the gang would you like to join us? We have to warn you though our adventures can get scary sometimes! Draw a picture of yourself in the space below. Hey dudes, call me Joe! I say it s cool to be cool! Whenever my skin feels hot and sore, I jump in the bath. Afterwards, I get mum or dad to help me cover my eczema with emollient. Then I put on a damp Tubifast Garment like a vest with sleeves that slides over the cream till it s a good fit. To make the soothing feeling last, I put on another vest, but this time it s dry this gives me a real cool layer against my skin that lasts for hours! My name is...

3 If you lived in Skin Care World (which you can if you d like to), you wouldn t feel quite right this morning. Although everything seems to be OK, there s trouble brewing. See those ugly looking characters round the edge of the picture? They re the trouble. The one in the stripy suit who s flying the Pollenrocket is Al Ergy and the others are his Pollution Gang. They ve just come to town and they re itching to get everyone s skin all red and hot and sore and scratchy. How do they do it? Turn the page (if you dare) and find out! 5

4 Meet the Pollution Gang Al Ergy is in the scratch racket. He runs the Pollution Gang and his job is to make you poorly. Dust and traffic fumes? He loves em because they make you itch. Household mites? He runs a whole string of em because they really get under your skin. He flies around in a Pollenrocket (which blows pollen everywhere), checking that his Gang is being really rotten to people, and shouting at them if they re not. Mighty Mites live in carpets, curtains, settees and sofas, mattresses, and even on your pet. They try to make your eczema worse. Every chance they get, they fly up in the air and go up your nose or on your skin, and make you come out in a rash and have to scratch. Get rid of those Mighty Mites by vaccing them up, spraying them or get rid of your carpets altogether. You should see the Mites when the vac comes near! They scurry and scrabble to get away, shrieking for help! The Itchysore-us is a bad dinosaur that makes you itch when he sneaks up behind you. You might think that a dinosaur is so big, he shouldn t be able to sneak up on anyone, but the Itchysore-us has a trick he can make himself invisible. Sometimes, the only way you can tell he s around is when your skin goes red and sore and you start to itch. What you have to do is wake up Emolly, because she can see the Itchysore-us, even when it s invisible to everyone else. Toss and Turn. These nasty little gremlins try to stop you sleeping. They wait till you re in bed and then they tickle your skin to make you itch. They keep on doing this until you re turning like a top and scratching like a dog with fleas. Then they laugh till their faces turn as red as your skin, and do it all again. 7

5 The Adventure Al Ergy has sent in the Mighty Mites to make the first attack on Skin Care World, but Thomas and Kimberley are ready with auntie s vac. That s what you do with pesky Mites you suck em up! The invisible Itchysore-us has crept up on Ash! Ash didn t know he was there till his skin started itching! The heat is building, and poor Ash is getting so red and sore he s just dying to scratch! Ouch! Squeak! Suck! Kerplop! Splurt! Kaplonk! The Mites are sucked up the tube, never to itch again! QUESTION: Can you name three places in your home where you d find mites? Answers on page Quickly, Ash summons up his Skincare Superpowers by putting on Tubifast Garments. The Itchysore-us knows he s beaten and galumphs off, to creep up on someone who isn t so well protected. QUESTION: Why is it important not to scratch when your skin starts to itch? Answer on page 8 9

6 Good old Anita! She spots the Itchysore-us before he disappears. She shakes gloopy Emolly. Come on, Emolly! Wake up! It s the Itchysore-us! Only you can help! The Whatysore-us? asks Emolly, forgetfully. The Itchysore-us, you gloopy old thing! You ve got to help us make him extinct! Emolly gets up and gallops after the Itchysore-us, shouting her battle-cry: What day is it? QUESTION: Can you complete this sentence? Epaderm is the name of the e t you put on your skin or in the bath. Answer on page 0

7 Can gloopy Emolly catch the Itchysore-us and make him extinct with her emollient? Will she remember what day it is? Or why she s running through the streets at all? Hurry, Emolly! How can the Happy Wrappers help slow the Itchysore-us down, so that Emolly can catch him before she forgets? Joe has a great idea! QUESTION: Joe often wears Tubifast Garments. Why is the first layer of these put on wet? Answer on page Colour by numbers Light Green Dark Green Yellow 5 7 Orange 8 Purple Flesh Blue Red

8 I know! Let s trip up the Itchysore-us with a Tubifast bandage stretched across the path! says Joe. It s a race against time as Joe and the Happy Wrappers disguise the bandage and get ready to bring the Itchysore-us down. Hurrah! The trap works and Emolly gloops the Itchysore-us into extinction! But the Pollution Gang still have plenty of mischief up their sleeves! QUESTION: Can you name three things that make your own eczema worse? Answers on page 5

9 Without the Mites and Itchysore-us, Al Ergy s Pollution Gang is weakened, but he s not finished yet! He has a cunning plan to keep everyone awake all night with itching, so that they ll be too tired to fight tomorrow! Toss and Turn want to ruin Toby s sleep but their nasty plan is foiled because Kimberley has warned his mum and she s put Toby s wet wraps on. But Kimberley overhears Al plotting and decides to warn the friends. QUESTION: Kimberley s eczema sometimes flares up in certain places on her body. What does she do to help? Answers on page Toby s anti-itch superpowers work even when he s asleep, so Toss and Turn have to find another victim. QUESTION: What did Toby s mum put on his skin before his wet wraps? Answer on page 7

10 But Thomas and Emolly corner Toss and Turn before they can get to the others! They re trying to squidge them with Thomas s emollient gun and Emolly s gloopy trunk. Spludge! Gloop! Plop! Splatter! But the gremlins are too quick for the two chums alone reinforcements are needed FAST! Where are the others? shouts Thomas. What s happened to Anita, Kimberley, Toby, Ash and Joe? I can t remember! shouts Emolly. QUESTION: Is it possible to use too much emollient? Answer on page 8 9

11 Good old Toby! He s the only one who can fit through the window, so he volunteers to get help. Oh No! Al Ergy has locked up Anita, Kimberley, Toby, Ash and Joe in his windmill den and taken all their cream and wraps! Is there no escape? Things are starting to get itchy! The others make a human pyramid and, even though it s extremely wobbly, intrepid Toby climbs up and scrambles out of the window, running off to bring wraps and cream. QUESTION: Which Tubifast Garments does Toby wear? Answers on page Can Thomas and Emolly come to the rescue, or are they too busy fighting Toss and Turn? See that little window up there? Could it be an escape route? QUESTION: Why is everyone becoming itchy? Answers on page 0

12 Well done, Toby! The Wrappers splodge emollient all over themselves and put on their Tubifast Garments, ready to continue with the fight! Thanks to their skincare superpowers, they escape through the walls, but Al Ergy sees them go and follows in his Pollenrocket! There s no escape from the forces of Pollution! he shouts. Resistance is futile! Is he right? Will the friends be able to save Skin Care World? Or is this the end of cool and itch-free skin for ever? QUESTION: When wet wrapping, how many layers of Tubifast do you use? Answer on page

13 What a fight! But the Wrappers have the advantage! Toss and Turn are on the run! With one great squirt of gloop, Emolly brings Al Ergy s Pollenrocket down and the gangster has to run away on foot! Thanks to their wet wrap superpowers (and Emolly, of course), the Happy Wrappers win, and Skin Care World is saved from the forces of itching and soreness! Let s hear it for Thomas, Kimberley, Joe, Ash, Anita, Toby and gloopy old Emolly!

14 How many questions did you get right? Emolly s Q Can you name three places in your home where you d find mites? A Carpets, curtains, settees and sofas, mattresses, and even on pets. Q Why is it important not to scratch when your skin starts to itch? A Scratching makes your eczema worse, not better, which will lead to more redness, soreness and itchiness, not less! Also, when you scratch, you can infect your skin, which makes things MUCH worse! Q Can you complete this sentence? Epaderm is the name of the e t you put on your skin or in the bath. A emollient Q Joe often wears Tubifast Garments. Why is the first layer of these put on wet? A To help keep his skin moist and cool. Q Can you name three things that make your own eczema worse? A Lots of things can make eczema worse. If your three are in the list below, you ve got the answer right! Detergents pet hair pollen household dust and mites soaps man-made fibres in bedding and clothing woolly jumpers and other clothes food allergies stress hot weather swimming baths Q Kimberley s eczema sometimes flares up in certain places on her body. What does she do to help? A Her mum helps her to patch wrap that is, they apply emollient and wraps just to the part of Kimberley s body that s affected. Q What did Toby s mum put on his skin before his wet wraps? A Emollient (Epaderm, actually). Q Is it possible to use too much emollient? A No. It s not like steroid cream you can use as much as you need, as often as you need. Q Why was everyone becoming itchy in Al Ergy s windmill den? A Al had taken away their emollient and wraps. It was hot in there and there was probably quite a lot of dust and pollen, too. Q Which Tubifast Garments does Toby wear? A When Toby was a baby, he used to wear vests and tights. Now he wears a vest, leggings and socks. Q When wet wrapping, how many layers of Tubifast do you use? A Two. The first layer is put on wet, and then the second layer is dry. Top Tips for Mums and Dads + Use Epaderm emollient directly on the skin, in the bath and as a skin cleanser. + Emollients are not steroids, and it is impossible to overuse them. Keep a small pot handy at all times and continue using, even after the skin has improved. + Emollients should be applied to the affected area at least twice a day (and preferably more often). + When travelling on warm days, keep emollients in a cool bag. + Keep fingernails short; file jagged edges. + After bathing, smear Epaderm emollient onto damp skin (don t rub) in the direction of the hair growth, to reduce the risk of infecting hair follicles. + Chlorine in swimming pools can irritate skin. Apply Epaderm emollient before and after swimming. + Don t have bathwater too hot. Use a soft towel for drying, and pat dry gently. + Keep house temperatures cool and ban pets from bedrooms. + Choose cotton for clothing and bedding. + Use distraction tricks to help children stop scratching: making patterns on the skin when applying emollient; using water misters (available from florists and supermarkets) to keep wet Garments damp on hot days; making up stories and rhymes and using distraction toys (and adventure books like this one!) at key scratching times such as long car, train or air journeys. You can join the gang in Skin Care World play games, download pictures of the Happy Wrappers and the Pollution Gang, meet friends and maybe help fight the evil agents of itching in the future visit The Arenson Centre Arenson Way Dunstable Bedfordshire LU5 5UL Tel: Tubifast Garments and Epaderm are trade marks of Mölnlycke Health Care. 7
