This blog is for all people with the skin condition: Eczema.The term eczema is broadly applied to a range of persistent skin conditions. These include dryness and recurring skin rashes that are characterized by one or more of these symptoms: redness, skin edema (swelling), itching, dryness, and more. Scratching may result in scarring and may enlarge the rash.
Not only is Eczema an annoying condition to have but it can also harm one's self esteem. The rashes are not pretty and one may not want to reveal there skin to others. It takes over your mind. knowing that you have a rash, wanting to scratch it, and knowing that others may see it. It becomes difficult to want to be close to anyone, while having this condition.
Living with Eczema is a blog that brings together all people with Eczema. It does this by allowing followers to (anonymously) submit confessions and testimonies about Living with eczema(hence the title). This blog promotes beauty and self love, which is always important. I've always had eczema but it hasn't been apparent in years, well up until about a week ago. I started scratching the back of my neck, showed my mom and she said my eczema is back. I started to freak out a bit. But then I found this blog and was reassured: "No matter what, don't forget, You Are Beautiful!"
