Itching for a Cure Walk

Itching for a Cure walk for eczema

2017 Itching for a Cure Virtual Walk for Eczema

Do you feel frustrated because people don’t take your eczema seriously?

Or because they won’t hold hands with your child because they’re afraid it’s contagious?

Or because no matter what you do, treatments just don’t seem to work?

DSC_0200You and NEA can change things. Really. Step by step.

Itching for a Cure (IFAC) helps build awareness and a greater understanding of eczema and advances research focused on improving patient care. For 2017 we are going virtual and walking throughout Eczema Awareness Month this October.

Join us! Step with NEA toward a cure for eczema by becoming a virtual walker, donating or organizing an Itching for a Cure walk in your own community. We walk for the 30 million Americans affected by eczema. Itching for a Cure gives those who have eczema and those who care for people with eczema the opportunity to take positive action and raise awareness about this disease.
