October is Eczema Awareness Month! Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It’s characterized by red, itchy, and inflamed skin patches that can be both physically and emotionally distressing. While eczema is common, it can be a source of frustration and discomfort for those who live with it. Common triggers include allergens like food, pet dander, or dust mites. Even soaps, detergents, lotions, and fragrances can trigger symptoms.
More than 31 million people in the U.S. have eczema and each person has a story to tell. Visit the Eczema Awareness Month website to share stories and join live events this month.
