Share a Photo for Eczema Awareness Month

October is Eczema Awareness Month. Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic, itchy skin condition. Looking for ways to get involved? This year for Eczema Awareness Month, we are working on a special project to showcase the true faces behind eczema.

Help us highlight ALL people with eczema

The purpose of this campaign is to show that eczema impacts people of all backgrounds and to illustrate the diversity of those who have it.

Eczema is often dismissed as "not a serious condition." Some do not truly understand the impact it can have on all areas of life. Help us put eczema into the spotlight.

How can I participate?

It is easy to get involved! All you have to do is submit a headshot photo to our Faces of Eczema Photo Submission Forum. Be sure to include:

  • First name and last initial
  • How long you have had eczema
  • One fun fact about yourself

Let us show the world that there are many faces of eczema.
