Eczema Awareness Month - Comments That Deserve an Eye Roll
October is Eczema Awareness Month. Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic, itchy, skin condition that can be painful to live with - both physically and emotionally.
Anyone with eczema knows that the visible rashes can have a major impact on confidence and self esteem.

Comments that deserve an eye roll
Sometimes people say things that aren't so nice. They look at our eczema flares and say hurtful things.
"Just put some lotion on it"
"If you stop scratching, it will go away"
"Eczema is just dry skin"
