National Eczema Week

National Eczema Week 13th September - 21st September 2014. 

Hey hey everyone, 

This week on Mellies Corner we are supporting National Eczema Week from the 13th of September to the 21st September 2014. 

My son Cairo and my mummy, amongst other family and friends, suffer from eczema. 
It is stated that in the UK, 1 in 5 children and 1 in 12 adults have eczema. It is an extremely popular medical disorder and affects people of all ages, cultural backgrounds and genders, from mild to severe forms of eczema. 

The National Eczema Society are a registered charity in England, Wales and Scotland, who are dedicated to improving the quality of life, of people with eczema and their carers. 
On the National Eczema Society website, they offer very helpful advice on how to look after your skin, to treatments from emollients to topical steroids to name a few. They also have booklets, fact sheets and magazines available through their website. 
They currently have a new school information pack available for free, on their website. The school information pack contains helpful information on eczema. With advice on how teachers can help children with eczema and a variety of activities, and resources, for different suggested age ranges. 

National Eczema Society website:

Monday - Friday, 8am - 8pm
0800 089 1122


I hope this has provided a little helpful information for you guys.
The internet can be a great place for information/answers, however do not forget we also have access to many professionals, who can offer helpful advice or referrals.
Also speaking with others who may suffer with eczema can help greatly, as they may be able to shine light on different treatments that may have worked for them.

 Have you ever experienced eczema?
