Skin to Skin

Caring for your eczema skin

Atopic dermatitis, also commonly known as eczema, is often trivialised as ‘just a skin condition’, but in reality, it can be anything but. Eczema affects 1 in 5 children and 1 in 10 adults in the UK but still remains misunderstood and stigmatised.

It is because of these reasons that Allergy UK have created an in depth guide to help people currently living with or caring for a child living with eczema, providing information and advice from how to recognise symptoms, common allergens and irritants to treatments and support.

This leaflet was fully funded by a hands-off grant from Sanofi.
