Message From The Founder

Greetings to all visitors of EczemaAid.com.au!

Born and raised in Sydney, Australia I have had eczema throughout the majority of my life. I have been hospitalised and spent a week in Westmead Children's Hospital covered in wet wraps when I was 8 years old. Nearly 3 decades have past with having eczema and I have tried almost everything - wet wraps, dry wraps, steroid creams, antihistamines, elimination diets, vegetarianism, organic foods and a huge range of vitamins and supplements.

Some of these worked better than others, but throughout my experience, the most effective cure of maintaining healthy skin with as minimal flare ups as possible is simply not to scratch! Easier said than done - especially for children (and I can remember growing up, thousands of times where my parents would tell me not to scratch), but the skin won't enter its healing process if the layers are constantly ripped and damaged by our fingernails.

I created EczemaAid.com.au in the hope I can help both children and adult eczema sufferers alleviate their eczema through and by controlling their scratching and minimising the damage to their skin, especially at night time. I will continue to source more products and information that has helped me and use EczemaAid.com.au as a hub to help eczema sufferers and their families. If anybody has any questions related to eczema at all - please don't hesitate to email me at info@eczemaaid.com.au and I am more than happy to help. (Note: I can just share my experience and tips that have helped me but I can not give medical advice).
