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!
Very helpful and fantastic information.
I found the programme useful as it informed me of triggers, how to deal with flare-ups and infections and the importance of moisturizing regularly to avoid flare-ups.
Easy to read information, with easy to follow advice.
It has been a great help for me and my family, as we now have much more information towards skincare.
I learned so much.
Good for advice about what to wear when you have eczema. And what to do in severe situations.
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.
Very good support system, very informative and helpful.
I think it's an exellent opportunity for people to come along and benefit.
Excellent programme with some very useful information and hints and tips. You think you know eczema but you really don’t.
Interesting and very helpful programme. A good point of reference for now and the future.
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.
