Eczema Club reader review
"A very good informative site about this very distressing condition. As an ex sufferer myself I can really relate to this as it advocates natural remedies rather than drugs and medicated ointments. A good site for the topic."

Eczema from A Child's Point of View

Friday, 22 February 2008

NEASE Children BrochureI recently came across one website section of National Eczema Association (NEA), a non-profit organisation giving support and education, as well as doing research on eczema. It's called NEASE (National Eczema and Sensitive-Skin Education).

As part of their campaign to improve the health and the quality of life of eczema sufferers, they launch NEASE for children, purposed to educate and support children eczema sufferers and commit research on child eczema.

I intrigued by their Children NEASE brochure. Not only wonderful design-wise, but also highly informative, yet simple. The best part of the brochure is, of course, the content - described from a child's point of view about his/her eczema - created by the children who suffer eczema themselves.

It's illuminating to learn from the simple brochure about what happen in a child with eczema's mind - paranoia, embarrass, humiliation, anger, anguish, afraid... making me think that there's so much things to do to give necessary supports to the young eczema sufferers, which is to me, for one reason only - what they learn to cope in their young age will determine their success in surviving eczema in their adolescent years; Eczema is physical in nature, but the psychological impacts are more destructive than the physical impacts.

Give support to the young ones by either donating your time and/or money to any eczema organisations you like, or by creating better awareness about eczema's impact on one's life - anything. Some of you've been there. I've been there.

Note: No affilation whatsoever between the NEA and I. I just love their causes and would like to support in any ways a blogger can.
