Treatment of children with severe atopic dermatitis (AD) can be especially challenging because several possible intervention treatments have (relative) contraindications in childhood. In recent years, wet-wrap treatment (WWT) has been advocated as a relatively safe and efficacious intervention in children with severe or refractory AD. The goal of this article is to provide a practical guideline as a starting point for clinicians who are interested in using WWT in their own clinical practice. We will address several practical issues surrounding the use of WWT by describing our own experiences, supplemented with data from the literature.
