I would recommend this programme to anyone suffering with dry skin conditions. I thought I already knew a lot about dry skin but the weekly manageable emails were comprehensive and gave further information sources. I now feel much more comfortable and confident in being able to deal with and manage my dry skin and know what questions to ask healthcare professionals if needed. Definitely recommended!

A lot of advice and help but for me I’ve got very dry skin but I also have p,l,d and there has never been much help for me in the over 25 years I’ve had it anyway.

The programme was very useful to people like me who just bear it and hoped it would just disappear when I came across talkhealth. I thought at first it was just another site that did nothing for you, how wrong I was, they are truly a very helpful site and the support is next to none.

My skin has always been problematic. Dry and itchy especially by summertime. I found many good advices, tips and simple steps on how to manage skin like that. I know it's not only skin. it's also our diet and specific amount of liquids.

So informative. The advice given is better than going to the GP as it’s so much more knowledgeable.

This programme is very helpful and useful. I found many things which are usefull in everyday life. Some things I already knew,some not. Sometimes because of service like this I don't really need to go to the doctor. Thanks for that.

I found all the information very helpful. There was advice such as triggers, infection, support & even how best to apply emolients. I felt it was helpful to read other people's stories. I felt that my dry skin condition has improved since starting the mydryskin support programme.
