The National Eczema Society was founded in 1975 and is the only charity in the UK dedicated to providing support and information for people who have eczema, and those who care for someone with eczema. One in every 10 people in the UK is affected by eczema. There is no known cure for this condition and one of our objectives is to raise funds to finance research projects.

Eczema causes physical and emotional distress, affects family relationships, undermines self esteem, affects social skills and places limits on career opportunities and academic achievement. Ignorance and lack of understanding among others can intensify feelings of loneliness and isolation.

To obtain more information about eczema please contact our Information Line on 020 7388 3444 between 10.00am and 4.00pm on any weekday except Thursday when the line opens at 1.00pm.

We maintain a large network of voluntary local contacts who live out in the regions. They have elected to be available for local people to contact by telephone and discuss any problems they have encountered. Local contacts often organise fundraising events and some set up support groups.

As well as providing support we offer training in the treatment and
management of eczema to health care professionals and run regular study days for community nurses, paediatric nurses and G.P’s to name but a few.[/boxibt]
