We understand the challenges of dealing with chronic eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis. We also understand the challenges of living with other atopic or allergic conditions. Therefore, Eczema Support Australia aims to provide support to Australians who are significantly impacted by these conditions.
Eczema SUPPORT Australia was inspired by a family with twin boys who have severe allergies and eczema. Thanks to the initiative and drive of a friend, this family finally received wonderful community support, which has made all the difference. All families and individuals dealing with these chronic conditions deserve our community support.
Australians, living with eczema, overcome difficulties and thrive in their community through connection, support and understanding.
