Meet Helen - a girl with eczema. Helen invites readers to learn about this skin condition from her perspective, describing how it feels to have itchy and inflamed skin nearly all the time. She explains how different creams, ointments and other treatments can help her skin to feel better and lets readers know about other ways she can be helped and supported.
This illustrated book is ideal for young people aged 7 upwards, as well as parents, friends, teachers and nurses. It is also an excellent starting point for family and classroom discussions.
This is a really excellent book, which explains in easily understood terms some of the everyday problems faced by someone with eczema. I know how distressing it is for children and adults with eczema and for their parents and carers. This booklet helps to explain in practical ways the challenges faced by those living with and caring for eczema.
This excellent book explains what eczema is in language a child can understand, which will in turn make it easier for them to live a full and confident life...Eczema may be challenging but it does not have to control our lives. By telling their story in such an accessible and engaging manner Julie and Helen are helping millions of children living with eczema and I am truly grateful to them.
