"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." Nicola (Sept 20)

We all want the best for our children, so it can be extremely distressing to watch out little ones scratch and rub themselves raw. 

That's why we've developed a programme specifically for parents and carers of children and teenagers who live with eczema. The 12-week myeczemachild is designed to help you navigate your child's treatment options and support you as you support them. 

Every week, you'll receive one or two PDFs to download containing easy-to-digest, practical information. Everything has been written by talkhealth and medical experts.

Topics we cover include: 

  • Types of eczema
  • Emollient advice
  • Patient stories
  • Eczema triggers
  • Preparing for nursery/school
  • The itch-scratch cycle
  • How to talk to your GP
