World Atopic Eczema Day on September 14 is an annual awareness day to recognise the impact eczema can have and raise the standards of care.


Atopic eczema is incredibly difficult on patients and their families, seriously impacting daily life.

An individual’s health and the overall wellbeing of families can be severely impaired by the disease.

World Atopic Eczema Day  reminds people affected by atopic eczema that they are not alone. Patients and families are encouraged to mark the day by connecting and helping others gain understanding of the disease impact by sharing their stories.

Eczema Outreach Support have lots of exciting things planned to mark World Atopic Eczema Day.
