Eczema, a chronic skin disorder, affects an estimated 15 million individuals in the United States. October is National Eczema Awareness Month. National Eczema Awareness Month was established to spread awareness about eczema in order to find better treatments and ultimately a cure for eczema. During the month of October, Americans are encouraged to get involved and spread awareness in their communities. There are endless ways that you can make a difference. Here are a few ideas, as suggested by the National Eczema Association:
Letter-writing to friends & family
Ladies shopping nights
