World Atopic Eczema Day - 14 September 2020

What is eczema?

Today is World Atopic Eczema Day which is dedicated to improving awareness and understanding of eczema (also known as atopic dermatitis).

Eczema can impact significantly on the quality of life for both the person with eczema and their carer.

The National Allergy Strategy recently developed new information about managing eczema for our 250K youth project. To support this information, a new video animation has been created, firstly for our 250K young adult website, and a teen version will be available soon.

The National Allergy Strategy has also developed information sheets to help people with eczema understand how to use bleach baths and wet dressings.

Visit the National Allergy Strategy website to see our new eczema animation and eczema resources.
