How can I take control of my eczema?

Communicating the impact of your condition and what you want to achieve with your management plan is often difficult, especially when your symptoms influence aspects of your daily life that are invisible to others. But, having an honest discussion with your healthcare professional (HCP) may make a difference.

From feeling uncomfortable trying to get to sleep in bed, to feeling itchy in your knitted jumper, skin conditions can impact many aspects of your everyday life.

Taking control of your atopic eczema may begin with a new conversation with your HCP - whether that is a pharmacist, general practitioner (GP), or dermatologist. Being open with your HCP will pave the way for appropriate management of your skin condition.

We have developed three easy steps that can help you understand the ways eczema affects you, that can help you prepare for a meeting with your healthcare professional, and that can help you manage your condition.

Explore the steps to find out why taking the next step could be worthwhile for you.
