"For the first time in a very long time, my 4 year old granddaughter has been able to enjoy a full night's sleep without scratching. You can imagine how happy and relieved her parents are to see how much better her skin is after just one night using ScratchSleeves. A night without scratching = a full night's sleep for everyone" - Vanessa.
This size is available in cream with pink, blue or chocolate edging, pink stripes or blue stripes . Other sizes available in various colors from 0 to 8 years. To ensure a good fit measure your child's 'wingspan' (the measurement from finger-tip to finger-tip with arms out-stretched) and compare to the measurements in the size dropdown. There is an allowance for growing room built into the sizing so it is best not to buy a size up if your child's measurements are close to the top of range.

Without him even knowing, my son will scratch off his skin while he's sleeping at night. It got so bad that he was covered in scabs that didn't get a chance to heal since he kept on scratching them. These sleeves saved his skin. I would heavily moisturize his skin with cream and put these on then put on a short sleeved shirt. Over a few weeks, I have noticed that his skin has cleared up and what's nice about these sleeves is that the hand area is in a soft silky material, so even if they tried to scratch, it doesn't do much harm.
At first, my son was opposed to wearing these, but after awhile, he got used to them. I would constantly tell him that these will help his skin get better and even he noticed that he was able to sleep better.
I bought this product to help my daughter. She has allergy related eczema and scratches in her sleep. It had gotten so bad that she wasn't sleeping and her sheets would have blood spots all over. :( I saw this and ordered. She wears size 3 shirts so I ordered a size 3-4 hoping that it would last a while. It is a little big on her. We have ordered a pj shirt in the same size and hopefully it will fit a little better. The material is very soft, and the silk on the outside of the mitts prevents scratching. My daughters skin has cleared up using this and creams. As long as she has eczema, I will be purchasing these. I HIGHLY recommend these to anyone who has a child with eczema.
I ordered a size smaller than what my daughter wears for clothes and it's still a little big. She wears 4-5t and I ordered 2-3t. I used the size chart and went by wingspan. Ordered for her to stop pulling her hair and it's a great deterrent. Just uses while she is sleeping, so color didn't matter. This was the only color in stock.
