Amazing I would definitely recommend to any parents with children who suffer.

The programme really helped our family and made us feel we are not alone. Every bit of the info could be useful to different people with different degrees of eczema. Then if you start reading and noticed it’s not for you don’t give up because I’m sure there's a bit in the next paragraph that could change your life forever.

I can't fault this programme, having a child suffering is heartbreaking and you often feel helpless but I'm much more knowledgeable thanks to this programme and find I can take action to ease my child's frustrations, discomforts and pain without seeking medical advice, this is really important as GP visits can also be very difficult and uncomfortable for my child.

Very good programme to sign-up to, for my son who has eczema on his face and all the doctor can give out is a tube of hydrocortisone cream and it can thin the skin on the face which it says on the leaflet, so i explored other products being Child's Farm and Eucerin at Superdrug and Boots the chemist.

A detailed and thoughtful approach to a concern of parents with a condition that is worrying and stressful for the child but also the parent and a guide to treatments and assistance to alleviate eczema with personal stories to show that families are not alone as well as contact information for support bodies and guides.

Very helpful programe. I do suggest that videos such as those on itchy sneezy, wheezy may also help. Also I was not able to access the individual module information on my online account, it only allowed me to download the first module of that week (I could access 4 but not 5 or 6). I would also be interested in evidence based of onset and prognosis of eczema or more facts regarding the condition. I found some of the stories intense and negative. However all in all, it helped me thoroughly while providing me with information I would not have otherwise been able to access. I still store and recap the pdf.

The program was extremely helpful and supportive. I found many answers to questions I had and lots of useful tips to try. I feel more confident dealing with my child’s skin condition now.

Excellent programme - my daughter has suffered with eczema for a long time and has tried numerous different methods to control and soothe her skin. The myeczemachild support programme advised her on different techniques and also made her feel that having this condition is not something to be ashamed of or to feel that she has to hide away.

Very interesting, informative, helpful and useful. I've learned a lot of things and taken notes on several key points. I'm pleased I've been a part of this and would recommend others to be a part of it.
