The charity’s general approach is to encourage active partnership between patients and healthcare professionals and the discussion of all available options, in the interests of informed choice on the part of the patient.

Warning on Products

Treatments or other forms of medication that suit one person may not suit another. It is advisable to test different skin products on a small patch of skin before general use.

You should consult your doctor before changing eczema treatment and should also do so if in doubt regarding a treatment or proposed treatment. The charity cannot accept any responsibility for failure to take medical advice.
