Summary:

An estimated six million people in the UK, and an estimated 15 million people in the US, suffer from eczema - a skin condition which makes the skin feel dry, hot and itchy. The often unbearable itchiness means it's almost impossible not to scratch, which can introduce infection if the skin then becomes broken, raw and bleeding. Although it is neither contagious nor life-threatening, eczema can be unsightly. As well as the discomfort and practical difficulties, it can cause considerable psychological damage. And, 86% of respondents to a survey by the National Eczema Society said they felt self-conscious about their eczema.

This book gives a simple, straightforward explanation of the condition and of the medical, complementary and self-help approaches which can help sufferers to lead a normal or near-normal life. It includes:

• expert advice from dermatologists
• latest research findings
• positive case histories of people of all ages
• contact details of helpful organisations
