myeczmeachild support programme
myeczemachild provides 24 weeks of dedicated support, sent to you by email in bite-size chunks. Every week there is a PDF for you to download or print containing practical information about how to manage eczema, written by talkhealth and medical experts.
Eczema can be an extremely uncomfortable condition for children and teenagers, causing itchy, sore and irritable skin. If you’re looking for additional support to help manage and control your child’s eczema.
Some of the topics the programme covers include:
- Types of eczema
- General emollient advice
- Patient stories and hints & tips
- Practical information about eczema triggers
- Preparing your child for nursery/school
- What to ask your GP or Dermatologist
- Itch-scratch-cycle and much more!
I thought before the programme that I knew "all there is to know". I was wrong! I learnt a lot but a key take-away for me was that you can't just do one thing at a time (e.g. emollients), it takes the full range of tips to make a difference, and you have to do it consistently not just on and off. It also really helped my daughter to know she isn't alone and there are lots of ways she can help herself too. All in all, highly recommended to others - even if you don't have children to be honest.
myeczemachild support program is great with lots of valuable information to help support you and your child with eczema. There was also a sample of cream to try with the information that was provided. This information helped with taking less trips to the doctors with easy information to follow.

myeczemachild progranme is such an informative programme to be a part of. It has given me so many more options for my daughters eczema that we never knew and has given us a better idea of how to manage it. Plus it has stopped some GP appointments.

Excellent programme with some very useful information and hints and tips. You think you know eczema but you really don’t.

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.
