October is Eczema Awareness Month

For Eczema Awareness Month 2019, we are calling on the eczema community to help us reveal #TheRealEczema.

October is Eczema Awareness Month. This year, in addition to our #unhideECZEMA campaign, we are focusing on #therealeczema. The goal of this campaign is to raise awareness, reduce stigma, and illuminate eczema’s true impacts.

  • Share eczema facts.
  • Tell us: What is one thing you wish people knew about life with eczema?

Week 2 (October 7-13): #TheRealCostofEczema

Week 3 (October 14-20): #TheRealHeroesofEczema

Week 4 (October 21-27): #TheRealFeelsofEczema
