School and nursery can be a tricky environment for a child with eczema.

Classrooms are often hot, there may be things that could trigger an eczema flare and it can be a long time without cream/emollient.

It can make a real difference if the school or nursery understand your child’s eczema and are supportive of any treatment they need during the day.  You can speak to your child’s school or nursery about their eczema and put in place a plan to help (this can be formal or informal).

School workshops

In some areas of the UK we can run primary school workshops about eczema and skin to help reduce the stigma of the condition and boost the confidence of the child with eczema.

Get in touch on info@eos.org.uk to know whether we can come to your child’s school.
