About Beth

I've had eczema now for 20 years and have tried nearly every treatment there is. I grew up in Sydney where night after night my mum layered me in creams, spent three and a half years in Vancouver where my eczema virtually disappeared and I am now in Brisbane and have lived here for 10.5 years. Over my 20 years I've tried various treatments and I'm now at a point where it's not controlling my life. I'm here to share my journey and spread my knowledge on all things eczema and I hope to be able to help in any way I can.

The hot vs cool water debate

17Oct

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had doctors tell me that I should only have warm showers and baths. Well, that’s all good and dandy in theory, but when you have red raw skin and are sweating, the … Continue reading

  

Blog #1 – Twenty Years
