Our Mission

We want to uncover the emotional impact of eczema on adults, including parents of children with eczema. Our study is called The Eczema Happiness Report.

By taking part in the series of short surveys, you’ll be helping us gather valuable insights into the lesser known realities of living with an unpredictable skin condition.

There’s little research into eczema and well-being to date: so our first goal is to produce a report that looks at the intimate layers between coping and happiness.

Share your story

Living with eczema and looking after children who’re suffering isn't easy. We know it’s hard to open up and share your feelings. But when you do, other people like you realise they’re not alone and a supportive community begins to grow.
