Atopic eczema goes BENEATH THE SURFACE

Living with atopic eczema goes far beneath the surface of our skin. It impacts all our health condition and life, including how we interact with others. Due to increased personal spending and uncomfortable social experiences, eczema patients face financial but also psychological challenges that negatively affect their Quality of Life.

World Atopic Eczema Day brings together those affected by the disease and encourages them to share their experiences so that we all look at atopic eczema beneath the surface.

Itching for Life Report unveiled breakthrough patient evidence

The results of our 2018 Quality of Life survey on atopic eczema show the unknown burden severe atopic eczema patients are dealing with. We asked 1,189 adult patients from nine EU countries about their lives and experiences with atopic eczema.
