Do you or close relatives have a history of asthma, allergic rhinitis (hay fever), food allergies or other allergic diseases? If so, you have a higher chance of having atopic dermatitis (AD), the most common type of eczema. These types of allergic conditions are often inherited and related. Many people with AD have at least one of these other conditions.

Help us raise awareness about eczema and AD during Eczema Awareness Month by sharing the messages below on social media.
