Eczema matters

Australia has one of the highest rates of eczema in the world. It' estimated that it affects between 10-15% of the population.*

The most common symptoms of eczema are dry, red and itchy skin at the elbow creases, wrists, neck, ankles and behind the knees.^

When the barriers of the skin is damaged, the skin loses moisture and becomes more susceptible to irritation. This can trigger release of chemicals like histamine that make your skin itchy.^
