If you have eczema, or care for someone who does, you know it can be a frustrating disease. This skin condition can be embarrassing, uncomfortable and tricky to manage.
Atopic dermatitis, the most common form of eczema, affects about 16.5 million Americans. Those who have it know it’s much more than “dry skin,” “sensitive skin” or a “rash.” But many who aren’t familiar with eczema don’t realize the social, emotional and financial impact it can have on people and families who manage it.
October is Eczema Awareness Month. Throughout the month, we will be sharing information to help people learn more about the impact of eczema. And we encourage you to join us in spreading the word.
We have several resources and tools to help you tell others about eczema:
- Shareable awareness images
- Facebook and Twitter cover photos
- Awareness ribbons and profile pictures
- Ready-to-tweet eczema facts
There is a lot about eczema that is misunderstood. Help us teach people about eczema for better treatment, research, understanding and overall awareness!
