National Eczema Society
The National Eczema Society has two principal aims: first, to provide people with independent and practical advice about treating and managing eczema; secondly, to raise awareness of the needs of those with eczema with healthcare professionals, teachers and the government.
We are committed to making life easier for the 1 in 5 children and 1 in 12 adults who suffer from eczema. Learning to manage your eczema or your child’s is an important part of coping and living with the condition. It is often helpful to meet other people who are in a similar position as they can offer support through personal experience together with practical help and tips. We provide access to a network of local support groups across the UK.
Currently, there is no cure for eczema. Finding a cure would significantly transform the lives of over 6 million sufferers in the UK, of which 15-20% are school children. The National Eczema Society supports funding research into eczema.
