Exchange Magazine

Our latest magazine is, as usual, packed to the gunnels with news, advice on managing eczema for all ages and real-life stories from people living with eczema.

  • Parents are often concerned that food allergies may be causing their child's eczema. Dr Matthew Ridd and colleagues discuss a new study looking at the usefulness of routine food allergy tests in children with eczema.
  • It's playtime! Claire Moulds interviews designer Lauren Bell, whose new Cosi Care range of itch-management toys was inspired by her family's own personal battle with eczema.
  • Planning to go on holiday soon? Claire Moulds offers timely advice to take the headache out of travelling for people with eczema.
  • Julie Van Onselen, Dermatology Nurse Adviser to the National Eczema Society, describes the different types of contact dermatitis, how we know whether a person has contact dermatitis and what patch-testing involves.
  • Eczema-cise: Alice Lambert, National Eczema Society's Head of Services, looks at how to get the most out of physical activity when you have eczema. Featuring Exchange reader June Hipkin.
  • 'Therapy made me realise I was doing everything I possibly could...' Exchange reader Shal Henry-Treloar describes her experience of juggling being mum to two children with eczema, her relationship and career.
  • Plus: members' letters, Ask the Expert and NES news, including an update from our London Marathon 2019 runners and information about National Eczema Week 2019 (14-22 September).
