Eczema is no respecter of age

Tuesday, 26 May 2020. 7.30 - 8.45 pm

Eczema is a term used to describe a group of common chronic inflammatory skin conditions that cause the skin to become dry, discoloured, itchy and inflamed. 

The appearance and presentation may vary from one person to another complicating diagnosis. One in 10 individuals are likely to have eczema at some stage during their life time particularly in childhood but it can occur at any stage of life. From birth to senescence; eczema is no respecter of age.  Due to its chronic and relapsing nature for many individuals it can cause significant impairment in quality of life.

However, with the right diagnosis, tools and management good control can be achieved for many individuals.

This webinar will cover common types of eczema from birth to the elderly including their presentations, treatment and differential diagnosis.
