Living with eczema or caring for a child who has eczema can be very hard. At times, it’s natural to feel lonely and isolated, but you really are not alone. There are people all over the world in the exact same situation that you’re in who can empathize with how you’re feeling. One of the wonderful things about today’s world of connectivity is that there are a number of online support communities, groups, and forums.

Not that long ago, none of these groups existed. People were stuck to manage their eczema alone, often without anyone to speak with about the problem. We are very fortunate to have these accessible resources at our disposal. We hope you’ll find these groups as helpful as we do.
