myeczemachild support programme
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!
This gave a great deal of valuable information which helped a lot to help us decide the best option and products to use to help with this horrible affliction
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.
Great support network to help alleviate the aloneness, great advice trusted to support mine and my child’s needs.
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.
myeczemachild progranme is such an informative programme to be a part of. It has given me so many more options for my daughters eczema that we never knew and has given us a better idea of how to manage it. Plus it has stopped some GP appointments.
Interesting and very helpful programme. A good point of reference for now and the future.
