Spotlight - Atopic Dermatitis & Pain
This month's spotlight is on pain and pain awareness. The pain of living with atopic dermatitis or eczema is often overlooked. Both physical and emotional pain is felt by many eczema sufferers. The wounds and scars that remain from itching and scratching cause pain that goes beyond appearance. As a community of individuals suffering from the pain of living with atopic dermatitis/eczema, it is important to come together and support one another by acknowledging pain.
