What good has come from your experience with eczema?

This Eczema Awareness Month, we're highlighting the good, bad, and in-between of life with eczema. Share something positive that has come from your life with eczema.

  1. Due to my lifetime of struggles with my eczema, I started my own business, BaBeBoBs Beauty and Fitness Consultancy, in 2017 to share advice and recommendations for how I manage my eczema and health through lifestyle modifications such as diet and fitness.


    In 2019 after treating a client with a severe condition and having success, their company sponsored my education to pursue a bachelors of Health Science program with a focus on exercise and nutrition to hone my knowledge and skills.


    Turning my weakness (eczema) into my life's work brought opportunities for me to make a livelihood and earn an education to help uplift others.

    1. Thank you for sharing and congrats on your degree + starting your own business! Those are two huge milestones. It's great to hear you're giving back and helping others with eczema. Keep it going!! -Sarah (AtopicDermatitis.net Team Member)

  2. I found the self confidence to be in public even with a bad flare up. I'm not embarrassed of myself.

    1. It's great to hear you're now more confident in your own skin. It makes a big difference! Thank you for sharing. -Sarah (AtopicDermatiits.net Team Member)
