The National Eczema Association’s Eczema: Tools for School is a kit designed to help parents and educators give children with eczema the best possible school experience.
Today, more than one million school-age children in the United States are suffering from severe eczema (also known as atopic dermatitis). Eczema is a chronic disease that causes itchy, inflamed skin. Although eczema is not contagious, symptoms like scaling, rashes and open sores can cause social and emotional issues that make life even more difficult for young children already dealing with a challenging disease.
There is a guide for parents and a guide for educators. Both guides offer ideas for taking positive action to improve the lives of those with eczema.
