If you have sensitive skin, everything you wear has to be carefully vetted for how it will react on your skin. For those who need compression stockings but have skin that flares up at the slightest provocation, Juzo compression stockings may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Not only are they gentle on sensitive skin, but they can even help soothe minor irritations.
There are many elements in a sock that can irritate sensitive skin, including the types of fibers used to make the fabric; any dyes or chemicals used on the fabric; the method of construction (seamed or seamless); and moisture regulation. For compression sock wearers with skin sensitivities, it’s especially important to choose products that won’t cause any inflammations. In diabetic patients, for example, skin irritations can lead to wounds that are difficult to heal.
Juzo compression stockings are made to be worn over sensitive skin. They’re made from hypoallergenic Lycra fibers, each of which is microspun with protective thread, so they’re breathable and latex-free. Juzo compression stockings also contain silver, which is widely used in medicine to dissipate heat from the skin and inhibit the growth of infectious microbes. For skin that is prone to irritation, it is particularly important to stop microbes before they cause infection.
