National Eczema Awareness Week

National Eczema Week 2014 has kicked off today with a series of helpline events, the first being today in Union Square, Torquay

Apologies to those who don’t have eczema but do have a read to give you an insight into the wonderful world of eczema and taming the itch.

In 2005 Eczema affected around 5.7 Million people in the UK and the figures are rising

If you haven’t already joined The National Eczema Society I would urge you to consider it. It’s fairly inexpensive to join and you just pay a one off yearly subscription which will entitle you to the regular magazine and loads of events and updates.

We will keep you posted with blogs about eczema over the coming weeks and please remember that if you are a sufferer then you can contact your local Eczema support centre which for Devon is based at The New Devon Clinic in Paignton
