Over 120 Eczema sufferers from across Australia and around the world have shared photos and stories of what it’s like living with eczema, as part of an awareness campaign to mark World Atopic Eczema Day on 14th September 2021.
The photos submitted as part of the #ThisIsEczema campaign have been arranged into an emotional video, to be released via the Eczema Support Australia social media pages today, highlighting the far reaching effects of the condition which affects 1-in-5 children and 1-in-10 adults.
Among the 128 heartbreaking photos and experiences shared were countless stories of babies and young children who had struggled to receive treatment and care to reduce the pain and severity of their symptoms.
