Press Reviews

  • from the foreword by Margaret Cox, Chief Executive, National Eczema Society, UK

    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.
  • Julie Block, Chief Executive Officer, National Eczema Association, USA

    Can I Tell You About Eczema? is an exceptionally well-written, factual book about this chronic condition. Children, along with their parents, siblings, extended family, as well as friends and teachers, are given a glimpse into what it's like to live with eczema.
  • Dr Iain Foulds, Consultant Dermatologist

    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.
