Included in this section is a range of clothing that may be suitable for people with sensitive skin. This includes clothing made from natural fibres such as cotton, wool and silk.
Care should be taken when selecting clothing if you have skin problems. These problems may be due to poor circulation, reduced sensation, allergies, or conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.1,2
Where possible, clothing should be loose fitting. Try to avoid creases and folds in the material, particularly if you sit for long periods, as they can cause pressure ulcers. Rigid seams in jeans, fasteners, pockets and accessories should also be avoided at the points where pressure is increased.1,2
