We've all heard the phrase "wait, isn't eczema just a rash?"
After all of the suffering, the sleepless night stayed awake scratching, the missed events, the mental fatigue, etc., honestly I want to scream every time our condition is reduced to "a rash." I remember being in high school and teachers would get mad at me for falling asleep in class all the time. It wasn't until recently that I realized I would fall asleep because I was hardly sleeping at night because I would stay awake just scratching, bleeding, trying to bandage up my open wounds, and repeat.
I want to know what you all want others to learn about what eczema is really like. What other aspects of your life does it affect that the average person may not realize?
